Ben Adcock

Dr. Adcock received his PhD in 2010 from the Department of Applied Mathematics & Theoretical Physics at Cambridge. Since leaving Cambridge, he has received a post-doctoral fellowship at Simon Fraser, and has held a faculty position at Purdue University. In 2014, Professor Adcock returned to Simon Fraser, taking up his current position as Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics there.

Dr. Adcock’s research interests are broad. They include (but are not limited to) numerical analysis, signal processing, and sampling theory. He has been described as a researcher who attacks classical problems “with a distinctly modern flair” and with “exceptional technical skill and creativity.” It is no wonder, then, that Adcock’s work promises to encourage advances in medical imaging, microscopy, and data mining.
