🎓 Academic Background

Jul 2019 Ph.D. in Computer Science at ANU
Jun 2014 Diploma in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science at GUU

🔬 Research

I work on creating new techniques to efficiently solve mixed-integer nonlinear programs to global optimality. I develop relaxations and cutting planes for convex and nonconvex MINLPs, more specifically problems involving bilinear products, on/off constraints and polynomials. Furthermore, I am interested in generalized convexity and its applications to global optimization. My research is closely linked to the development of the solver SCIP.
