Third-cycle subject: Computer Science
This project involves the reconstruction of 3-dimensional temporal fields from sparse measurements using deep generative models (DGM). The students will work on core machine learning problems such as DGMs and specifically develop (1) joint optimization of sensor locations and field reconstruction, and (2) loss functions suitable for downstream prediction tasks. Examples of techniques include DGMs such as VAE, differentiable optimization of discrete variables such as Gumbel distribution and recent architectures such as vision transformers.
On the application side, in collaboration with the engineering mechanics department, we use the developed techniques to model flow in simulated or real urban environments from sparse measurements

Only those admitted to postgraduate education may be employed as doctoral students. The total length of employment may not be longer than what corresponds to full-time doctoral education in four years ' time. An employed doctoral student can, to a limited extent (maximum 20%), perform certain tasks within their role, e.g. training and administration. A new position as a doctoral student is for a maximum of one year, and then the employment contract may be renewed for a maximum of two years at a time.Union representatives
