Suresh Venkatasubramanian, assistant professor in the School of Computing, was recently honored with a National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award for his work on “Geometric Algorithms For Data Analysis in Spaces of Distributions.” The award is one of the NSF’s highest honors for young faculty.

Venkatasubramanian will use the five-year $486,000 grant to develop a systematic, global algorithmic framework for manipulating concrete geometric notions. The framework will provide the foundation for efficient and accurate data analysis of spaces of distributions and lead to deeper insights into analysis problems across a wide range of applications.
