I have a background in developing approximation algorithms, efficient algorithms that generate provably good solutions for NP-hard problems. I apply these techniques to problems involving customer choice models, mathematical models that describe customers behavior. With these models I answer questions such as ``What products should we display?'' or ``What prices should we post?''.

I am currently an Assitant Professor of Industrial and Enterprise Systems Engineering at the Univeristy of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

I recieved my Ph.D in Operations Research and Information Engineering at Cornell University under the advisorship of Huseyin Topaloglu and David P. Williamson. I completed my undergraduate degree at Rutgers University-Camden.
