Dr. Simon Foucart earned a Masters of Engineering from the Ecole Centrale Paris and a Masters of Mathematics from the University of Cambridge in 2001. In 2006, he received his Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, specializing in Approximation Theory. After two postdoctoral positions at Vanderbilt University and Universit Paris 6, he joined Drexel University in 2010 before moving to the University of Georgia in 2013. Since 2015, he has been an associate professor at Texas A&M University. His current work focuses on the modern field of Compressive Sensing, whose theory is exposed in the book A Mathematical Introduction to Compressive Sensing he coauthored with Holger Rauhut. Dr. Foucarts research was recognized by the Journal of Complexity, from which he received the 2010 Best Paper Award. Dr. Foucarts interests also include the mathematical aspects of metagenomics.
