My research is concerned with the design and analysis of mathematical optimization algorithms for nonlinear, large-scale (often infinite dimensional) problems and their applications to science and engineering problems.

I plan to add descriptions of some research projects. For now, please visit my publications for details.

I am part of the Computational Optimization and Modeling of Porous Media (COMP-M) group and the CAAM Optimization Group.
