Ju Sun (孙举)

Dedicated to my research and life


I’m Ju Sun, a Math+X postdoctoral scholar working with Professor Emmanuel Candes at Stanford University. Prior to this, I obtained my PhD degree from Electrical Engineering, Columbia University in 2016, working with Professor John Wright. I work at the intersection of computer vision, machine learning, numerical optimization, signal/image processing, information theory, and compressive sensing, focusing on modeling, harnessing, and computing with structures in massive data, with provable guarantees and practical algorithms.

[New] As of year 2017/2018, I’m on the academic job market. See my [CV] and [Research Statement].
