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 also been working with Professors Mengdi Wang, Han Liu, and Tong Zhang. Before joining ORFE, I completed my PhD in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) at the University of Florida under the 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) reinforcement learning and stochastic optimization, b) first- and second-order methods for data analytics and large scale optimization problems, c) simulation-based optimization, and d) computational lower bounds.

See Publications and Teaching tabs for a list of selected papers and courses I taught. You can also see my Google scholar page.
