Major Scientific Interests: Time-Frequency Analysis, Wavelets, Applied Mathematics, Image and Signal Compression, Comparison of Surfaces
Ingrid Daubechies is a mathematician. Her research focuses on mathematical aspects of time-frequency analysis. She is best known for the discovery and analysis of compact wavelets used in image compression. The Daubechies wavelets were named after her, as was an asteroid in 2016: (42609) Daubechies.
A wavelet is a mathematical tool used to remove unnecessary information from large image files. Ingrid Daubechies has discovered compactly supported wavelets that are fundamental to image compression, thereby revolutionizing the use of JPGs and other digital image formats. Her theory has led to the development of image filtering methods used in medical imaging devices such as mammography and wireless communication.
Ingrid Daubechies' current research focuses on the development of analytical and geometric tools for surface comparison. This comparison plays an important role in the creation of video animations as well as in medical and biological applications.
She is especially concerned with improving mathematics instruction worldwide and promoting women in mathematics. She is also committed to furthering mathematics, science, and technology in developing countries.
