We are thrilled to share that LIDS faculty member Guy Bresler has received a National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award for his research on “Reducibility among high-dimensional statistics problems: information preserving mappings, algorithms, and complexity.”

Guy’s project aims to develop a comprehensive average-case complexity theory of statistical inference, which would be a significant advance to our understanding of the information and computation limitations in high-dimensional statistics, with broad applicability to a variety of important application domains. Full award information can be found here.

Guy joins other LIDS faculty who have recently received NSF Career Awards, namely, Suvrit Sra (2019 award) and Caroline Uhler (2017 award).

The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the NSF’s most prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization.
