September 2017 : Scott Spencer New Mathematics Postdoc
The Department of Mathematics welcomes Scott Spencer as a new postdoc. Scott received his PhD from Georgia Tech under the guidance of Professor Michael Lacey. His research is mainly in Harmonic Analysis. "I work in harmonic analysis and signal processing, particularly where these fields have applications to or from machine learning and probability," Spencer says. "It is very interesting when a deterministic problem can be almost solved, i.e. with high probability, by a random construction," Scott adds. More recently, Scott Spencer has been studying Boolean functions with certain sparse characteristics with the hope of applying his work in compressive sensing to learning Boolean functions.
