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 GGAM Mini-Conference 2017 took place on February 16. Three speakers, Professors Miles Lopes, Xiaodong Li, and Patrice Koehl, presented their research. Two poster sessions were held, in which graduate students presented their applied mathematics research. The poster session and the following reception were also an opportunity for visiting prospective graduate students to learn about the research activities in GGAM.

Dr. Rademacher works in theoretical computer science and some related areas. He is primarily interested in the foundations of data science and artificial intelligence and this has lead to a focus on problems in convex geometry, machine learning, matrix computations and optimization. Dr. Rademacher received his Ph.D. in mathematics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He has received an NSF CAREER award.
