Ingrid Daubechies

James B. Duke Professor of Mathematics and Electrical and Computer Engineering

Daubechies came to Duke in 2010 after being on faculty at Princeton University. She served as the first female president of the International Mathematical Union from 2011 to 2014. Daubechies’ work in applied mathematics is well-known, particularly in regard to the “Daubechies wavelets”—which are integral to the JPEG image compression format.
