About the PNAS Member Editor
Name Coifman, Ronald R.
Location Yale University
Primary Field Applied Mathematical Sciences
 Election Citation
Coifman is a world leader in harmonic analysis. He introduced tools powerful enough to solve Kato's conjecture and Calderon's problem in pure mathematics, yet sufficiently simple and flexible to become the basis for new, fast algorithms to handle the problems of wave propagation, data storage, denoising, and medical imaging.
 Research Interests
My recent publications have been in the areas of harmonic analysis, including nonlinear Fourier analysis, wavelet theory, numerical analysis, and scattering theory. I am currently engaged in a research program to develop new mathematical tools for efficient transcription of physical data with applications to fast numerical modeling, feature extraction recognition, and denoising.
