Tufts engineer earns NSF Career Award to study multidimensional data science

MEDFORD/SOMERVILLE, Mass. (June 1, 2016) — Shuchin Aeron, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering in Tufts University’s School of Engineering, has received a Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and U.S. Department of Energy. Shuchin is the fourth member of the School of Engineering faculty this year to be recognized as one of the country’s most promising scientists and engineers. Aeron received a five-year $530,000 NSF award for his work advancing multidimensional data science via new algebraic models and algorithms. He aims to re-invigorate interest among other researchers in using tools from linear and multilinear algebra that are currently overlooked. The new algorithms can be applied to problems in a wide range of fields, including social networks, medical imaging, geophysical inversion, computer vision,…
