Research Interests

Numerical optimization, especially problems involving continuous variables. I'm interested in the theory, algorithms, and implementations, and in applications of all types.



Current Research

  • Design and analysis of algorithms for continuous optimization.
  • Optimization in machine learning and other areas.
