John Bardsley

Department of Mathematical Sciences, The University of Montana
Dr. Johnathan M. Bardsley is Professor of Mathematics at the University of Montana (UM) in Missoula, Montana, USA. He received his PhD from Montana State University in 2002 under the direction of Professor Curtis R. Vogel, with a dissertation focused on computational inverse problems. He then spent one year as a post-doc at the Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute, under the direction of Professor H. Thomas Banks. He began his current job at UM in 2003, and since then has spent two years abroad as a visiting Professor: first at the University of Helsinki in Finland in 2006-07; and then at the University of Otago in New Zealand in 2010-11. Dr. Bardsley has published over 45 refereed journal articles and has given many presentations on his research around the world. He also organized Montana Uncertainty Quantification, a conference/workshop that took place at UM in June 2015. Dr. Bardsley’s current research is focused, broadly, on uncertainty quantification for inverse problems, and more specifically, on the development of Markov chain Monte Carlo methods for sampling from posterior distributions that arise in both linear and nonlinear inverse problems. He has a forthcoming book, titled Computational Methods and Uncertainty Quantification for Inverse Problems, that will be published by SIAM.
