Bio

His scholarship is at the interface of operations research and computer science. Operations research is a scientific approach to analyzing problems and making decisions, usually under conditions requiring the allocation of scare resources. The majority of his research has centered around the development of techniques for solving problems that can be modeled as nonlinear 0-1 programs. He is also interested in modeling and analyzing real world problems. As an applied mathematician, his teaching interests primarily center around statistics, operations research, and computational mathematics. He also regularly teaches discrete mathematics and linear algebra, and occasionally teach analysis of algorithms.
