Agencies funding my work include:

Since 2022, I am an assistant professor (open-ended) in the Operational Research group at the School of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Southampton, UK.

I received my habilitation in mathematics (2023), from the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany where I worked from 2019-22. Before this, I worked at the Discrete Math & Optimization group at Sandia National Laboratories, US, from 2016-19.

I received both my PhD (2016) and Master's (2016) degrees in operations research from The University of Texas at Austin, US. My PhD work was advised by David Morton (optimization) and Lauren Meyers (biology). Here, I also received a portfolio in scientific computation (2015) from the department of statistics. I received my Bachelor's (2011) degree in chemical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi, India.  Here is a short CV.

In 2024-25, I am a visiting professor at TU Dresden, Germany as part of their Distinguished Research Fellowship.

I am the winner of the Mathematics 2023 Young Investigator Award

Data-driven decision-making under uncertainty (particularly using stochastic optimization models) - formulations, algorithms, and applications - is my key area of interest. See more, here. My research is funded, among others, by the German Research Foundation (DFG), the Horizon 2020 program, and the US Department of Energy's LDRD program (see left).

Latest News: (see more news here)

🎉 I am recruiting another post-doc at Southampton! Candidates with a mathematical background apply here.

🎉 I'll be at Schloss Dagstuhl on a research visit for highly-reliable decision-making under uncertainty. Thanks to Schloss Dagstuhl for the invitation

🎉 I'm teaching a 2-day course for PhD students and postdocs on chance constrained programming in the Saxon Doctoral Program - an initiative of four German universities - at TU Dresden. No registration fee but seats are limited! PhD students will get certified credits.  

🎉Congratulations to my student Malena Schmidt for publishing our work on using optimization to reform the recycling policy of Bavaria in Networks

🎉 I visited the mathematics department at IIT Delhi and gave a talk on chance constrained optimization. Thanks to the London Mathematical Society for supporting my visit.
