I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering and a Graduate Field Faculty in the School of Operations Research and Information Engineering and the Center for Applied Math at Cornell.

My research interests are in the modeling, analysis and control of networked urban infrastructure systems with a focus the transportation network. I work primarily on problems related to vehicle routing with applications in route planning with reliability guarantees, dynamic traffic assignment and control, and ride-sharing systems. I am particularly interested in developing computationally efficient solution techniques and algorithms that enable practical applications.
