A Recent Project:

I'm a fourth-year doctoral student, specializing in algorithms and optimization. My previous degrees are in mathematics, with emphasis in algebraic geometry. Before coming to BU, I also worked for a year as a software engineer at Vecna Technologies in Cambridge, MA.

When not working on academic things, I enjoy playing music and visiting the many historic sites in Boston with my wife.
