Mark A. Davenport is an Assistant Professor with the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA. Prior to this, he spent 2010-2012 as an NSF Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Statistics at Stanford University and as a visitor with the Laboratoire Jacques-Louis Lions at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie. He received the B.S.E.E., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and computer engineering in 2004, 2007, and 2010, and the B.A. degree in managerial studies in 2004, all from Rice University. His research interests include compressive sensing, low-rank matrix recovery, nonlinear approximation, and the application of low-dimensional signal models in signal processing and machine learning.
Dr. Davenport shared the Hershel M. Rich Invention Award from Rice University, in 2007 for his work on the single-pixel camera and compressive sensing. In 2011, he was awarded the Ralph Budd Thesis Award from Rice.
