Career Highlights:

Clifford Nolan is a lecturer in mathematics at the University of Limerick in Ireland. He runs a research group in mathematical imaging (RADAR, electromagnetic, elastic, ultrasound), with applications in various areas such as the environment, medical imaging, manufacturing industry, etc. This work is supported by a grant from the Science Foundation Ireland. Prior to returning to his native Ireland, Clifford was a tenure-track professor at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Prior to this, he tenured a NSF fellowship for three years at the University of Washington.

Research Areas:

Medical and seismic imaging using microlocal analysis.
