INITS award to Carola Schoenlieb
Carola Schoenlieb, recently appointed University Lecturer in DAMTP, has received a 2010 award from the Academic Business Innovator INITS, a Viennese association which provides encouragement and support to academics to start their own company. Based on work she carried out when she was a PhD student, Carola proposed to create image restoration software for artists and museum archives and this proposal won the 3rd prize in the "General Technologies" category.
An account of some of this work, under the title 'Restoring Profanity' http://plus.maths.org/issue50/features/schoenlieb/index.html
