Professor Tropp's recent research focuses on the role of probability and optimization in numerical analysis and scientific computing. In particular, he studies algorithms for signal processing and modern data analysis that exploit randomness. The relevant mathematics include applied harmonic analysis, probability theory, discrete and convex geometry, variational analysis, and multilinear algebra. Ideas from theory of algorithms also play a central role.
