Assistant Professor of Mathematics (Non Tenure-Track)

Office: SC 1511


Research Interests

My current research is devoted to theoretical foundations in Data Clustering, including some matrix factorization methods which solve the Subspace Clustering problem. Related to this, I have worked on the CUR Decomposition for matrices, which is a low-rank matrix approximation method. I have also worked extensively on the interaction between high-dimensional Sampling Theory and Radial Basis Function approximation schemes.
