Remo Kretschmann


I am currently a member of the research group Uncertainty Quantification and Inverse Problems at the Lappeenranta-Lahti University of Technology.

I am a former member of the research group Inverse Problems and have received my doctoral degree from the Universität Duisburg-Essen. My supervisor was Prof. Christian Clason.

I have been working on nonparametric Bayesian inverse problems with non-Gaussian noise or prior distribution. This includes the rigorous statistical interpretation of variational regularisation with l1-discrepancy term in the context of Bayesian inference, as well as generalising the notion of modes in infinite-dimensional spaces with regard to probability distributions that exhibit discontinuities such as distributions with compact support.

My research interests are (Bayesian) inverse problems with infinite-dimensional non-Gaussian noise or discontinuous prior distribution, as well as Gaussian approximations of the posterior distribution in nonlinear Bayesian inverse problems.
