My Interests

I work on variational analysis and nonsmooth optimization, with a particular interest on the interplay between optimization algorithms and semi-algebraic geometry, and on variational properties of eigenvalues. My research has been continuously supported since 2004 by the National Science Foundation, currently under Grant DMS-1613996.

I am a SIAM Fellow. I am a Co-Editor of Mathematical Programming A, an Associate Editor of Mathematics of Operations Research, of Set-Valued Analysis, and of Mathematika, and I recently served a three-year term as a Council Member of the Mathematical Optimization Society.

My research has been recognized by the 1995 Aisenstadt Prize, from the Canadian Centre de recherches mathematiques, the 2003 Lagrange Prize for Continuous Optimization from SIAM and the Mathematical Optimization Society, and a SIAM Outstanding Paper Award in 2005. I was an Invited Speaker at the 2014 International Congress of Mathematicians in Seoul.

I served as Director of ORIE from 2010 to 2013. I have also served on the editorial boards of the SIAM Journal on Optimization, the SIAM Journal on Matrix Analysis and Applications, SIAM Journal on Control and Optimization, and the MPS/SIAM Series on Optimization. I have served as Treasurer of Foundations of Computational Mathematics.

My longtime friend, mentor, and co-author of Convex Analysis and Nonlinear Optimization, Jon Borwein, passed away in 2016. I miss him.

I updated these pages in July 2018.
