Yifei Lou received her Ph.D. in Applied Math from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) in 2010 when she was co-supervised by Prof. Andrea Bertozzi in Math Dept. and Prof. Stefano Soatto in Computer Science Dept.

After graduation, she joined 
the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology as a postdoctoral fellow, supervised by Prof. Allen R. Tannenbaum

A year later,  she had a joint position as a visiting lecturer at the Department of Mathematics, University of California San Diego and a postdoc at UCLA. 

Since June 2012, she became a postdoc working with Prof. Jack Xin and Prof. Hongkai Zhao at the Department of Mathematics, University of California Irvine.

Starting August 2014, she is an Assistant Professor at the University of Texas Dallas.

Her research interests are
  • Compressive sensing and its applications
  • Image analysis (medical imaging, hyperspectral, imaging through turbulence)
  • Numerical analysis and optimization algorithms
