I am currenty an associate professor in computer science at the University of British Columbia (Okanagan campus).
My research is at the boundary between Mathematics and Computer Science and focuses on building tools to manipulate fundamental convex analysis objects thereby giving more insight into the structure of optimization problems. It is conveniently summarized as Computational Convex Analysis and involves investigating hybrid symbolic-numerical algorithms.
More precisely I am interested in the following projects:
- designing new algorithms in Computer-Aided Convex Analysis to compute operators arising in convex analysis.
- designing a road at minimal cost while still satisfying regulatory and safety constraints in collaboration with my colleagues in mathematics and engineering, and in partnership with a private company.
Keywords: Computational mathematics, convex analysis, numerical optimization, modelling, and applications.
I am looking for graduate students who are interested in these topics especially to work on my current projects. If you are interested, please contact me. (There are ongoing graduate funding opportunities.)
UBC Okanagan offers Graduate degrees (both at the MSc and PhD level) in Optimization and in Mathematics. Join the Centre for Optimization Convex Analysis and Nonsmooth Analysis, an active, fun, small, but dedicated group of researchers and students with interest in Optimization and Analysis. Enjoy campus life in the beautiful city of Kelowna, at the shores of Lake Okanagan, and nestled right between the Rocky Mountains and Vancouver.
