Scholarship Description:

Shuang Li is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Iowa State University (ISU). Prior to her current position, she was a Hedrick Assistant Adjunct Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of California, Los Angeles. She received her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering (with a minor in Computational & Applied Math) from the Colorado School of Mines. Her research focuses on exploiting the low-dimensional structures such as sparsity, low-rankness, and smoothness present in high-dimensional data to develop optimisation-based techniques and provide optimality guarantees for fundamental problems in signal processing and machine learning. Some of her recent research directions include convex and non-convex optimization, game theory, digital beamforming, and tensor analysis.
