Numerical Linear Algebra and is an active research area to which Prof. Robert Plemmons has made many fundamental contributions in the past, e.g. in nonnegativity and M-matrices. He has worked on applications of numerical linear algebra and optimization to image processing for the past 20 years. His work includes a wide range of disciplines, such as geospatial imaging and randomized algorithms for remote sensing. Bob's research has been continuously funded by research grants form a variety of government sources since 1968.
