I am a Professor in the ECE department of The University of Texas at Austin. I received a PhD in EECS from The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS), and an AB in Mathematics from Harvard University. I received the NSF CAREER award in 2011.
    My current research interests focus on decision-making in large-scale complex systems, with a focus on learning and computation. Specifically, I am interested in robust and adaptable optimization, high dimensional statistics and machine learning, and applications to large-scale networks, including social networks, wireless networks, transportation networks, and energy networks. I also work on applications of machine learning and optimization to computer-aided design.
