TGDA@OSU: Discovering Structure, Shape, and Dynamics in Data

This project will advance the methodological and theoretical foundations of data analytics by considering the geometric and topological aspects of complex data from mathematical, statistical and algorithmic perspectives, thus enhancing the synergy between the Computer Science, Mathematics, and Statistics communities.

Furthermore, this project will benefit a range of impactful scientific areas including medicine, neuronanatomy, machine learning, geographic information systems, mechanical engineering designs, and political science. The research products will be implemented and disseminated through software packages and tutorials, allowing widespread application by industrial and academic practitioners.

Through this project, the PIs will develop curricula for cross-disciplinary, undergraduate and graduate education. Additionally, this project aims to develop partnerships with the Translational Data Analytics and the Mathematical Biosciences Institutes at OSU, as well as other internal and external research and education centers.

The TGDA@OSU TRIPODS team is composed of Tamal DeyMatthew KahleSebastian KurtekFacundo MémoliDavid Sivakoff and Yusu Wang.
