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.
