I graduated with my Ph.D. in Algorithms, Combinatorics, and Optimization from Carnegie Mellon University in May 2018. I am currently a postdoctoral researcher under Andrea Lodi at Polytechnique Montréal.
- January 2021: I will start as an assistant professor at the University of Florida, Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering!
- June 21, 2020: Please join and contribute to Discrete Optimization Chats, a virtual gathering place for the discrete optimization community.
- April 13, 2020: Elias B. Khalil and I are organizing virtual Discrete Optimization Talks (DOTs). Visit the DOT website for the details.
- April 9, 2020: I am keeping a list of virtual seminars.
- Old news: I founded the INFORMS Student Chapter at CMU, which I encourage the CMU community to join. The chapter has been recognized several times by INFORMS for its activities. I was also the founding chair of the YinzOR Student Conference, an annual student-led conference organized by CMU INFORMS.
ResearchMy research is on methodology and applications for discrete decision analytics. In particular, I work on developing new cutting plane techniques, as well as better models and algorithms for computational social choice applications focusing on the fair allocation of indivisible resources.
Cutting plane methods
