Somthing has gone wrong

James M. Murphy

Tufts University
Department of Mathematics


I am an assistant professor of mathematics at Tufts University with adjunct appointments in computer science and electrical & computer engineering. I work on problems in applied harmonic analysis, mathematics of data science, statistical & machine learning, and high-dimensional probability theory and statistics. In addition to mathematics, I work on data science problems in image & signal processing, molecular dynamics, and computational biology.

I lead the HIgh-dimensional Learning and Data Analysis (HILDA) research group at Tufts. My group always has research opportunities for exceptional Tufts students interested in mathematics, data science, and applications.

I am co-organizing a workshop on optimal transport in data science at ICERM in May 2023; apply if interested.

My research is supported by the National Science Foundation; the Camille & Henry Dreyfus Foundation; and the Robert E. Wise, MD, Research and Education Institute.
