Research Overview

My research interests encompass several facets of convex and nonconvex optimization, including theory, algorithms, and applications. I am particularly interested in developing optimization models with desirable structural properties for various real-life applications, exploiting problem-specific properties to develop effective solution methods, understanding the worst-case behaviour of such algorithms, and implementation of algorithms. On the theoretical side, my recent research interests focus on exact and approximate representations of discrete and nonconvex optimization problems via convex conic optimization. My work on applications includes problems arising from electricity markets, wireless networks, logistics, graph theory, and machine learning.
