Research summary

The ability to see inside objects using electromagnetic waves offers significant potential social and economic benefits, with applications that range from imaging the moisture content of grain stored in large bins to detecting breast cancer. As Canada Research Chair in Applied Electromagnetic Inversion, Dr. Colin Gilmore is building on his prior discoveries in applied electromagnetic inversion (EMI) to help detect things that are normally hidden.

He and his research team are focused on three new goals: increasing the reliability and stability of EMI imaging, generating practical uses for machine learning in EMI imaging, and creating a clinical-ready prototype, contrast-enhanced EMI system for detecting breast cancer and monitoring treatment. Solving these challenges will lead to important impacts in an array of different fields.
