ICERM Postdocs



Postdoctoral institute Fellows:
Photo Ulas Ayaz Ulas Ayaz completed his Ph.D. in Mathematics at the Hausdorff Center of Mathematics under the supervision of Professor Holger Rauhut. Dr. Ayaz’s primary research interests are in mathematical signal processing, random matrix theory, frame theory, geometric functional analysis and compressed sensing. He is especially interested in the analysis of sparse and low-dimensional representations of high-dimensional data. Before coming to ICERM, Dr. Ayaz worked with SONY Corporation on a research project for applying compressed sensing to image sensors. As a postdoc, he will be at ICERM for the 2014-2015 academic year.
Photo Emily Russell Emily Russell completed her PhD in Physics at Harvard University under the supervision of Professor David Weitz. Her research interests lie in describing how local interactions drive the global structure and behavior of complex systems; during her PhD work, she examined such phenomena experimentally in charged colloidal systems, and she will now focus on combining her physical intuition with a mathematical understanding of more general systems. As an Institute postdoc, Dr. Russell will be at ICERM for the 2014-2015 academic year.

Postdoctoral Fellows:
Photo Ali Ahmed Ali Ahmed completed his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology under the supervision of Professor Justin K. Romberg. His research focuses primarily in signal and information processing. His research interests include inverse problems, low dimensional models including group sparse and low-rank models and also, applied probability theory and the role of convex optimization in estimating low-dimensional signal models. Dr. Ahmed will be at ICERM from September 2014 to December 2014 as a postdoctoral fellow. He will be joining imaging and computing group led by Professor Laurent Demanet, Department of Mathematics at MIT, as a postdoctoral researcher beginning January 1st, 2015.
Photo Pawel Siedlecki Pawel Siedlecki completed his Ph.D. in Mathematics at University of Warsaw under the supervision of Professor Leszek Plaskota. His research interests lie in computational complexity of continuous problems. His current research focuses on information-based complexity and tractability of multivariate problems. Dr. Siedlecki will be at ICERM from September 2014 to December 2014 as a postdoctoral fellow.
Photo Jacqueline Davis Jacqueline Davis completed her Ph.D. in Mathematics at Vanderbilt University under the supervision of Professor Akram Aldroubi. Her research interests lie in computational harmonic analysis and sampling theory. Dr. Davis will be a postdoc at ICERM from September 2014 through December 2014. In January 2015, she will begin a postdoc at Arizona State University, where she will work on the reconstruction of images from non-uniform Fourier measurements.
Photo Li Wang Li Wang received her Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics at the University of California, San Diego under the supervision of Professor Jiawang Nie. Her research interest focuses on polynomial optimization and machine learning. Dr. Wang will be a postdoc at ICERM from September 2014 through December 2014. After ICERM, she will be a postdoc at University of Victoria, Canada.
