Dima Drusvyatskiy and four UW colleagues have been awarded one of twelve grants under the National Science Foundation’s new Transdisciplinary Research in Principles of Data Science (TRIPODS) initiative.  Jim Ulvsestad, the NSF’s acting assistant director for Mathematical and Physical Sciences, explains that "TRIPODS will accelerate the development of modern foundations of data science through a truly transdisciplinary collaboration between mathematicians, statisticians and theoretical computer scientists, while also creating opportunity for fundamental development to occur in finding solutions to important data science challenges in the domain sciences.”  The UW TRIPODS project is titled "Algorithms for Data Science: Complexity, Scalability, and Robustness.”  Dima is joined by Sham Kakadu in the Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering and Statistics, Maryam Fazel in Electrical Engineering, Yin Tat Lee in the Allen School, and Zaid Harchaoui in Statistics.
