Coralia Cartis has been Associate Professor in Numerical
Optimization at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford
since 2013, and a Turing fellow at the Alan Turing Institute for
Data Science since 2016. Her research interests include the
development and analysis of nonlinear optimization algorithms, with
particular emphasis on complexity/global rates of convergence, and
diverse applications of optimization from climate modelling to
signal processing and machine learning.
Nicholas I. M. Gould is a Senior Fellow at the STFC-Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire, and a visiting professor at the Universities of Edinburgh and Oxford. His research interests include the theory and practice of optimization methods, numerical linear algebra, large-scale scientific computation, and the links between these fields.
Philippe L. Toint has been the co-director of the Numerical Analysis Unit and director of the Transportation Research Group at the University of Namur since 1979. His research interests include numerical optimization, numerical analysis, and transportation.
