UCLA Applied Math Professors Andrea Bertozzi and Stan Osher join an elite team of scientists as co-principal investigators for "Leveraging Sparsity" the UCLA project recently awarded the prestigious $1 million grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation.

Lead principal investigator Paul Weiss, director of UCLA's California NanoSystems Institute, and Mark Cohen, director of the National Institutes of Health-Funded UCLA Semel NeuroImaging Training Program, will work collaboratively with Bertozzi and Osher to revolutionize the field of sparse data collection and reconstruction across real world applications in areas such as science, medicine, and engineering. With the remarkable advances in pure and applied mathematics as the driving force behind the scientists' goal to "transform the way imaging and related data are acquired, analyzed and understood," the next two years will no doubt be an exciting time of innovation and discovery.
