Graduate Student Wins Best Student Paper Award
Graduate student Xuemei Chen won the award for best student paper at the 9th International Conference on Sampling Theory and Applications (SampTA) held at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore in May 2011.
Chen received the award for her paper titled “Stability and Robustness of Lq Minimization Using Null Space Property.”
SampTA is an interdisciplinary conference that brings together mathematicians, engineers, and applied scientists to share recent advances in sampling theory and to explore new directions in related areas of application.
The SampTA 2011 included many prominent speakers, such as John Benedetto, Albert Cohen, Stephane Mallat, and Steven Smale.
Chen is pursuing her Ph.D. in mathematics at Vanderbilt under the guidance of Professor Akram Aldroubi and Assistant Professor Alex Powell.
