David Donoho was named Clay Senior Scholar at the program on Mathematical, Computational and Statistical Aspects of Image Analysis at MSRI. He will be in residence for three months during the Spring Semester, 2005.
David Donoho is Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor in the Humanities and Sciences at Stanford University. He works in mathematical statistics, information theory and computational harmonic analysis. He is currently interested in new multiscale representations lying "beyond wavelets," and in rapidly finding the sparsest solution of systems of underdetermined linear equations. He received his AB from Princeton summa cum laude in statistics and his PhD in statistics from Harvard. He has received a MacArthur Fellowship as well as the von Neumann prize of the Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics, and has served as Wald lecturer for the Institute of Mathematical Statistics. He is a member of the US National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
