Main fields: 

- inverse problems and microlocal analysis, and applications in exploration seismology and global seismology, coupled to geodynamics
- multi-dimensional imaging, inverse scattering and tomography
- nonlinear inverse boundary value problems: direct and iterative reconstruction; geometric inverse problems
- development of multiscale methods and nonlinear theories of generalized functions applied to scattering and inverse scattering in media of low regularity, highly discontinuous and random media
- structured matrix based methods, and massively parallel algorithms
