I am an Assistant Professor at Caltech in the Department of Computing and
Mathematical Sciences and in the Department of Electrical
I received a Ph.D. in
Engineering and Computer Science in June 2011 from MIT, where my advisors were Professor Pablo
Parrilo and Professor
Alan Willsky in the Laboratory
for Information and Decision Systems. I also received
an S.M. in EECS in June
2007 from MIT, and a B.A. in Mathematics as well as a
B.S. in Electrical and
Computer Engineering in May 2005 from Rice University in Houston,
Texas. I was a postdoc with Professor Michael
Jordan at Berkeley
during the 2011-2012 academic year.
research interests broadly lie in mathematical optimization
and its application to the information sciences. A
particular focus is on the development of convex optimization
methods for challenging problems in statistics and signal
processing, with concepts from algebra and convex geometry
playing prominent roles.
