Anna Gilbert received an S.B. degree from the University of Chicago and a Ph.D. from Princeton University, both in mathematics. In 1997, she was a postdoctoral fellow at Yale University and AT&T Labs-Research. From 1998 to 2004, she was a member of the technical staff at AT&T Labs-Research in Florham Park, NJ. Since then she has been at the Department of Mathematics at the University of Michigan, where she is now the Herman H. Goldstine Collegiate Professor. She has received several awards, including the Sloan Research Fellowship (2006), and NSF CAREER award (2006), the National Academy of Sciences Award for Initiatives in Research (2008), the Association of COmputing Machinery (ACM) Douglas Engelbart Best Paper award (2008), the EURASIP Signal Processing Best Paper award (2010), a National Academy of Sciences Kavli Fellow (2012), and the SIAM Ralph E. Kleinman Prize (2013).
Her research interests include analysis, probability, networking, and algorithms. She is especially interested in randomized algorithms with applications to harmonic analysis, signal and image processing, networking and massive datasets.
