Justin Solomon will join the faculty as an assistant professor in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science by July 2016. He is currently an NSF mathematical sciences postdoctoral research fellow in applied math at Princeton University. He earned his MS and PhD in computer science from Stanford University, where he also earned a BS in mathematics and computer science. Solomon is a past recipient of the Hertz Foundation fellowship, a National Science Foundation graduate fellowship, and the National Defense science and engineering graduate fellowship. His research focuses on geometric problems appearing in shape analysis, optimization, and data processing, with application in computer graphics, medical imaging, machine learning, and other areas. He taught classes on numerical analysis, computational differential geometry, and computer science at Stanford. His textbook, Numerical Algorithms, was released in 2015 (CRC Press).
