Professor of Mathematical Sciences
Ph.D. in Mathematics, Indiana University, 1982
1993 - present: Professor of Mathematics, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Cheney works on inverse problems in acoustics and electromagnetic theory. Some of her work has dealt with low-frequency electromagnetic imaging, in which images are made of objects much smaller than the wavelength of the interrogating fields. More recently she has been working on remote sensing problems, including ground-penetrating radar, sonar, adaptive time-reversal methods in both acoustics and electromagnetics, Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), and Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (ISAR).
