Nick Dexter


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Scientific Computing at Florida State University.

I was previously a Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) Postdoctoral Fellow working with Professor Ben Adcock at Simon Fraser University. I studied mathematics at the University of Tennessee under Professor Clayton Webster, and worked in the Computational and Applied Mathematics Group at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

My research interests are in machine learning,  sparse polynomial approximations, compressed sensing, optimization, applied & computational harmonic analysis, parameterized PDE problems, and numerical analysis.
