News and Announcements

The Computational Infrastructure for Geodynamics (CIG) develops open-source software for modeling and solving scientific problems in solid-Earth geophysics. CIG facilitates use of high-performance computing in collaboration with national computing facilities. This creates cutting-edge research opportunities for applied mathematics students.
His paper "Hierarchical graph Laplacian eigen transforms", coauthored with 2016 Applied Math Ph.D. graduate Jeff Irion received the 2016 JSIAM Letters Best Paper Award; and he received the 2016 Bulletin of JSIAM Best Author Award for his 2015 paper "Applied harmonic analysis on graphs and networks".
He was an Invited Speaker at the 16th International Conference on Hyperbolic Problems, Aachen, Aug 1-5, 2016 and a Plenary Speaker at the SIAM Conference on Nonlinear Waves and Coherent Structures, Philadelphia, Aug 8-11, 2016.
The recently released version of Wolfram's Mathematica software now implements the celebrated Tracy–Widom distribution, named after GGAM member Prof. Craig A. Tracy and his long-term collaborator Harold Widom.
He is interested in developing mathematical theories and algorithms to solve inverse problems arising from signal processing, wireless communication and image processing.
Dr. Lopes' main research areas are in high-dimensional statistics and machine learning, with a particular focus on resampling and bootstrap methods in high dimensions.
The Noether Senior Scholar Award is presented by the American Statistical Association (ASA) to a distinguished senior researcher or teacher in nonparametric statistics. Prof. Jane-Ling Wang was recognized for her outstanding contributions to the theory, applications and teaching of nonparametric statistics.
