News and Announcements

Among the speakers: New GGAM member, Dr. Shiqian Ma (Department of Mathematics). He works on theory and algorithms of optimization and its various applications in areas like machine learning, statistics, signal processing, image processing, bioinformatics, etc.
Professor Liu is committed to graduate education in the applied mathematical research areas. In particular, she is interested in the area of data-driven resource management and control, where she uses machine learning and optimization techniques to improve the performance of networks.
GGAM Faculty members received prestigious awards. Jesús De Loera received the 2017 MAA Golden Section Teaching Award. James Bremer was named a 2016–17 UC Davis Chancellor's Fellow. Terry Nathan received the 2016 Award for Excellence in Graduate Mentoring. Phillip Rogaway received the 2016 Levchin Prize.
He develops mathematical theories and algorithms to solve inverse problems arising from signal processing, wireless communication and image processing. A total of three prizes is awarded this year by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM). Shuyang's prize is for his paper "Self-calibration and biconvex compressive sensing", coauthored with his advisor, Prof. Thomas Strohmer.
The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) has just announced the 2017 Class of SIAM Fellows, among them Prof. Zhaojun Bai, Professor of Computer Science and Mathematics, who is recognized for significant contributions to numerical linear algebra, eigenvalue computation in particular, and its application to computational science and engineering.
