Research Scientist

At Facebook, I focus on development of optimization models and solvers for Facebook infrastructure specializing in service placement. Previously, I worked at Rockwell Automation focusing on analytics deployed on edge devices. I completed my PhD at Carnegie Mellon University with Prof. Sahinidis focusing on applying optimization techniques for molecular design.

My interests are in the combination of integer optimization, derivative-free optimization, and ML to build large-scale intelligent models for solving real world problems.

Interests

Integer optimization, derivative-free optimization, large-scale systems
