I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Operations Research at The Naval Postgraduate School. My current research focuses on the intersection of machine learning and operations research, with an additional emphasis on data-driven decision making. Specific topics of interest include robust optimization and optimization under uncertainty, risk management, and network optimization. Additionally, I have interests in machine learning and artificial intelligence research ranging from the modern (e.g. deep learning) to the fundamental (i.e. defining proper performance metrics).
Prior to my appointment at The Naval Postgraduate School, I received my PhD and M.S. in Industrial and Systems Engineering from the University of Florida and my B.S. in Mathematics from Emory University.
