My research interests are in optimization and its application in machine learning and in disciplines involving differential equations. I specialize in nonlinear optimization, both convex and non-convex; deterministic and stochastic. There is a need for solving ever larger optimization problems, and throughout the years, I have developed algorithms that scale well with the number of variables, make judicious use of second-order information, and parallelize well. The motivation for my current algorithmic and theoretical research stems from applications in image and speech recognition, recommendation systems, and search engines. This research is at the intersection of Industrial Engineering, Computer Science and Applied Mathematics.
