About Me

I am a Golomb Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Purdue University. My supervisor is Professor Saugata Basu. Before my current position, I was a Visiting Scholar in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Lehigh University and a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in the school of Industrial Engineering at Purdue University. I completed my PhD in Industrial and Systems Engineering from Lehigh University in 2018 under the supervision of Professor Tamas Terlaky. My research is supported by NSF Grant CCF-2128702.


My current research interests lie at the interface of optimization theory, real algebraic geometry, and applied algebraic topology. I am particularly interested in the complexity of semidefinite and polynomial optimization through the lens of real algebraic geometry and topology. My PhD research was on the optimal partition and perturbation analysis of semidefinite and second-order conic optimization problems.
