Research Interests:

My research interests are in the areas of robust and stochastic optimization, control, and economics with a focus on applications to sustainable transportation and electric power systems.

About Me:

I am an Associate Professor and the David D. Croll Sesquicentennial Faculty Fellow in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University. At Cornell, I currently serve on the Faculty Advisory Board for the Cornell Atkinson Center for Sustainability and as the Faculty-in-Residence for Hu Shih Hall. I received my BS and PhD from UC Berkeley in 2006 and 2011, where I was advised by Kameshwar Poolla. Prior to joining Cornell in 2012, I spent one year as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the California Institute of Technology (hosted by Adam Wierman and Steven Low) and UC Berkeley (hosted by Pravin Varaiya and Kameshwar Poolla). In 2016, I was an invited Visiting Scientist at the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing as part of a research program on Algorithms and Uncertainty. I also currently serve as a Visiting Academic at Amazon, providing scientific guidance for their transportation sustainability efforts. I am a recipient of the NSF Faculty Early Career Development Award (CAREER), the John and Janet McMurtry Fellowship, the John G. Maurer Fellowship, and the Robert F. Steidel Jr. Fellowship.
