I am an associate research scholar in the Department of Operations Research and Financial Engineering (ORFE) at Princeton University working with Prof. Warren Powell. I have been also working with Professors Mengdi Wang, Han Liu, and Tong Zhang. Before joining ORFE, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the School of Mathematics at the Institute for Research in Fundamental Sciences and in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) at the University of Florida each for one year. I also completed my PhD in the ISE department under supervision of Prof. Guanghui Lan.
My reserach is mainly focused on developing efficient algorithms for solving different classes of nonlinear and stochastic programming. In particular, I work on a) first- and second-order methods for data analytics and large scale optimization problems, b) real-world applications of stochastic optimization, and c) computational lower bounds.
