Dianne O'Leary gave a distinguished lecture on "Image Restoration from a Machine Learning Perspective" at the University of Minnesota. As a Cray Distinguished Speaker, she discussed image restoration methods such as exploiting training data, using Bayesian estimation, and designing optimal filters.

O'Leary's research focuses in computational linear algebra and optimization, with applications including solution of ill-posed problems, image deblurring, information retrieval, protein configuration, and quantum computing.

She is a member of AWM and a Fellow of SIAM and ACM, and has received multiple awards. She was chosen to be the 2008 AWM-SIAM Sonia Kovalevsky Lecturer. O'Leary is Editor-in-Chief of the SIAM Journal on Matrix Analysis and Applications, and co-edits the column "Your Homework Assignment" for Computing in Science and Engineering.
