About me

Hello, my name is Marcelo Pereyra, I am an Assistant Professor at the School of Mathematics and Computer Sciences of Heriot-Watt University, and the Maxwell Institute for Mathematical Sciences. I am also Associate Editor for Digital Signal Processing, and was Guest Editor for the recent IEEE J-STSP special issue on "Stochastic Simulation and Optimisation in Signal Processing" (see issue).

My research is mainly about new mathematical theory, methods and algorithms to solve challenging inverse problems related to mathematical and computational imaging. I am particularly interested in new Bayesian analysis and computation approaches, and in the synergy between modern stochastic simulation and convex optimisation methodology (see for example Proximal MCMC algorithms).

Short biosketch

I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1984. I studied Electronic Engineering and received a double M.Eng. degree from ITBA (Argentina) and INSA Toulouse (France), together with a M.Sc. degree from INSA Toulouse, in June 2009. In July 2012 I obtained a Ph.D. degree in Signal Processing from the University of Toulouse. I am also the recipient of a Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowship for Career Development, a Brunel Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Statistics, a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship from French Ministry of Defence, a Leopold Escande PhD Thesis excellent award from the University of Toulouse (2012), an INFOTEL R&D excellent award from the Association of Engineers of INSA Toulouse (2009), and an ITBA R&D excellence award from the Buenos Aires Institute of Technology (2007).
