2016 NSF Career Award - Professor Piya Pal

Prior to joining the UC San Diego faculty, Professor Piya Pal received an NSF CAREER Award for a project on “Smart Sampling and Correlation-Driven Inference for High-Dimensional Signals.” The five-year award will allow Pal to develop a systematic theory of smart sampling and information retrieval algorithms for modern sensing systems. The systems in question exploit the correlation structure of high-dimensional signals to reduce significantly the number of measurements needed for inference.

The CAREER Awards provide approximately $500,000 in funding over five years to support research as well as teaching and educational outreach.
