Margaret Cheney
Professor of Mathematical Sciences
Education:
Ph.D. in Mathematics, Indiana University, 1982
B.A. in Mathematics and Physics, with High Honors in Mathematics, Oberlin College, 1976
Career Highlights:
1993  present: Professor of Mathematics, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
1988  93: Assocate Professor at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
1984  88: Assistant Professor of Mathematics, Duke University
1982  84: Postdoc with J.B. Keller, Department of Mathematics, Stanford University
Research Areas:
Cheney works on inverse problems in acoustics and electromagnetic theory. Some of her work has dealt with lowfrequency electromagnetic imaging, in which images are made of objects much smaller than the wavelength of the interrogating fields. More recently she has been working on remote sensing problems, including groundpenetrating radar, sonar, adaptive timereversal methods in both acoustics and electromagnetics, Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), and Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (ISAR).
