Papers

My research is in network modeling and value of information. That being said, I am interested in a wide variety of topics, including computing disease intervention strategies, nuclear smuggler interdiction, algorithm design, Markov decision process, etc.

I am currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Texas at Austin.  Until Fall 2014,  I was an Assistant Professor in the Operations Research department at the Naval Postgraduate School.  I finished my post-doc in the UT Austin OR/IE program in Sept 2010. Most of my work during my post-doc was with Dave Morton, Lauren Ancel Meyers and Constantine Caramanis.  In May 2008, I graduated from the UT Austin Computer Science department. My advisor is Greg Plaxton.
