Stefan C Schonsheck, PhD


Position Title
Postdoctoral Researcher/Krener Assistant Professor


Office Hours

I recently completed my Ph.D. in the Applied Mathematics Department at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, working under Dr. Rongjie Lai and joined UCD TETRAPODS  Institute of Data Science in the summer of 2020 working under Naoki Saito.

I study computational differential geometry focusing on PDEs and optimization problems involving manifolds. Specifically, I'm interested in applications in shape processing, signal analysis, and machine learning in non-Euclidean domains. I also have interests in graph-structured data, manifold modeling, harmonic analysis, and generative processes.
