My research interests lie broadly in both discrete and continuous optimization. I am actively exploring structure in mixed integer programs (MIP) through branching, decomposition, as well as machine learning techniques. In the meantime, I address challenging optimization problems arising in logistics systems. I am also interested in designing efficient algorithms with provable complexity bound for large-scale non-convex optimization problems from machine learning.
