ICERM Postdocs


Postdoctoral Fellows - Spring 2018
Photo Mario J. Bencomo received his Ph.D. from the Department of Computational and Applied Mathematics at Rice University under the direction of his advisor Dr. William W. Symes. His research interests include mathematical methods for inverse problems related to exploration seismology, in particular the representation and estimation of seismic sources via multipoles. Dr. Bencomo will be at ICERM from September 2016 through May 2017 as an Institute Postdoctoral Fellow.
Photo David de Laat completed his PhD in mathematics at Delft University of Technology under the direction of Dr. Frank Vallentin. After that he was a postdoc at CWI and currently he is a postdoc at MIT. His research interests are in optimization, discrete geometry, and quantum information. Dr. de Laat will be at ICERM from February 2018 to May 2018.
Photo Maria Dostert completed her Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics at the University of Cologne in 2017 under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Frank Vallentin. Her research interests are real algebraic geometry and optimization, in particular the connection of nonnegative polynomials and sums of squares to these fields. Dr. Dostert will be at ICERM from February 2018 through May 2018 as a Semester Postdoctoral Fellow.
Photo Philippe Moustrou completed his Ph.D. in mathematics at the University of Bordeaux in 2017 under the supervision of Profs Christine Bachoc and Arnaud Pêcher. HIs research interests lie in Euclidean lattices and related topics, such as sphere packings, coding theory, discrete geometry, and convex polytope. He will be at ICERM from February 2018 to May 2018 as a Semester Postdoctoral Fellow.
Photo Yu Guang Wang obtained his PhD in Applied Mathematics from University of New South Wales (UNSW Sydney) under the supervision of Drs. Ian Sloan and Rob Womersley. His research interests include applied harmonic analysis, quadrature rules on manifolds and computational statistics. He will be at ICERM from February 2018 to May 2018 as a Semester Postdoctoral Fellow.
Photo Wei-Hsuan Yu completed his Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of Maryland College Park under the supervision of Drs. Alexander Barg and John Benedetto. Dr. Yu’s research interests are discrete geometry, spherical few-distance sets, spherical designs and equiangular lines. Dr. Yu will be at ICERM from September 2017 to May 2018 as an Institute Postdoctoral Fellow.
