My Interests

I work on variational analysis and nonsmooth optimization, with a particular interest in semi-algebraic optimization and variational properties of eigenvalues. My research is supported by National Science Foundation Grant DMS-1208338.

I served as Director of Cornell's School of Operations Research and Information Engineering from July 2010 to June 2013.

I am a SIAM Fellow. Among my professional service roles, I am a Co-Editor of Mathematical Programming A , and an Associate Editor of Mathematics of Operations Research , and of the MPS/SIAM Series on Optimization . I have also served on the editorial boards of the SIAM Journal on Optimization , the SIAM Journal on Matrix Analysis and Applications , and the SIAM Journal on Control and Optimization . I have served as Treasurer of Foundations of Computational Mathematics .

I updated these pages in September 2013.
