I have moved to the Computer Science Department at the University of Chicago in September 2019.

Before then, I was an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Boston University and an affiliate of the Center for Information and Systems Engineering (CISE).

My name is pronounced /l o ˈ r ɛ n ʦ o | o ˈ r e k . k ja /

Email: mylastname@bu.edu
Physical Address: 135D, MCS Building

My research focuses on applying mathematical techniques from discrete and continuous optimization to design algorithms for computational challenges arising in a variety of applications, including Machine Learning, Numerical Analysis and Combinatorial Optimization.

See my Publications page to find out more about my research. You can also see my CV.

  • I am looking for Ph.D. students that are broadly interested in Algorithms and\or Convex Optimization. Please __contact me directly__ with your application materials if you are interested in this opportunity.
