My research is in the area of continuous and combinatorial optimization, focusing on conic optimization, semidefinite programming, numerical computation, and applications. I did my Ph.D. under the supervision of Henry Wolkowicz in the Department of Combinatorics & Optimization at the University of Waterloo.

After my Ph.D., I worked with Jérôme Malick as an INRIA Postdoctoral Fellow in the BiPop Research Group at the INRIA Grenoble Rhône-Alpes numerical research center in France. At INRIA I worked on solving hard combinatorial problems to optimality by branch-and-bound, using advanced techniques for the fast computation of high-quality semidefinite-based bounds. 

Before coming to NIU, I was a PIMS Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Computer Science at the University of British Columbia working with Michael Friedlander on sparse and low-rank recovery methods with connections to semidefinite programming.
