Mathematician Focuses on Getting the Most from Small Data
A University of Texas at Dallas mathematician has received a five-year grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) in support of her work on doing more with less data.
Dr. Yifei Lou
, assistant professor of mathematical sciencesin the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, was awarded an NSF Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award of more than $400,000 for her work on “Mathematical Modeling for Data to Insights and Beyond,” a project that seeks analytical tools to provide guidance on acquiring data more efficiently. In an age when so much focus is on big data, she calls her work “small data.”

“If one is able to collect only a certain amount of data, what method will allow him or her to get the most out of it?” Lou asked. “For example, if you can see only 25 percent of the pixels in an image, what way of picking one out of every four pixels would let us best identify the pictured object?”
