University of Colorado at Boulder


Shannon Hughes is an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering, and also an affiliated faculty member of the Applied Mathematics Department, at the University of Colorado at Boulder.  Her research interests are in modern signal processing and data analysis, specifically in efficiently acquiring large amounts of data from few measurements, learning the inherent organization of very high-dimensional datasets via manifold learning, and effective classification of complex signals.  She also regularly collaborates on applications of these issues in the fields of neuroscience and art history.   Previously, she completed her PhD in 2008 at Princeton University as an NSF Graduate Fellow and Gordon Wu Fellow under the guidance of Ingrid Daubechies and Peter Ramadge.  

The Hughes group thanks the National Science Foundation and the Office of Naval Research for their ongoing support of our work.
