Welcome! I am a postdoctoral scholar (research associate) in the optimization theme at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery (WID), University of Wisconsin-Madison. Broadly, my research interest is the development of mathematical models and optimization methods. I generally focus on dynamic and stochastic optimization problems, and more recently, problems in which derivatives are unavailable. I am interested in applications of all types, including cancer treatment (radiation therapy), agricultural management, and power system simulation.
I recently received my Ph.D. degree at MIT in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
(EECS), and was affiliated with the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS). I worked on optimizing the delivery of radiation therapy cancer treatment dynamically over time. My advisors were Prof. John N. Tsitsiklis, Prof. Thomas Bortfeld, and Prof. David Craft. I previously received my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) from Georgia Tech.
