Fields of interest. Continuous and discrete optimization, low-rank matrix approximations, nonnegative matrix factorization, numerical algorithms, computational complexity, machine learning, data mining, hyperspectral imaging.

*News* I have been awarded an ERC starting grant to work on low-rank matrix approximation problems (project COLORAMAP). The project will start in September 2016. I have also been awarded an Incentive Grant for Scientific Research by the FNRS (funds for scientific reserch in Belgium) for two years. 

Where I'll be at? 
- 30 May - 1 June 2016: MATHICSE seminar, EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland
- 14-17 June 2016: 9th Workshop on Structural Dynamical Systems: Computational Aspects (SDS 2016), Monopoli, Italy.
- 11-15 July 2016: SIAM Annual Meeting, Boston, USA.
