Stephen Wright (UWMadison)
Steve Wright is a Professor of Computer Sciences at the University of WisconsinMadison. His research interests lie in computational optimization and its applications to science and engineering. Prior to joining UWMadison in 2001, Wright was a Senior Computer Scientist (19972001) and Computer Scientist (19901997) at Argonne National Laboratory, and Professor of Computer Science at the University of Chicago (20002001). He is the past Chair of the Mathematical Optimization Society (formerly the Mathematical Programming Society), the leading professional society in optimization, and a member of the Board of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM). Wright is the author or coauthor of four widely used books in numerical optimization, including "Primal Dual InteriorPoint Methods" (SIAM, 1997) and "Numerical Optimization" (with J. Nocedal, Second Edition, Springer, 2006). He has also authored over 85 refereed journal papers on optimization theory, algorithms, software, and applications. He is coauthor of widely used interiorpoint software for linear and quadratic optimization. His recent research includes algorithms, applications, and theory for sparse optimization (including applications in compressed sensing and machine learning).
