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 on transportation networks. 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.

Postdoc Position:
The Integrated On-Demand Transit Systems project in looking to hire a postdoc for a research collaboration with a stealth mode startup. We're looking for someone with a strong optimization or algorithms background.
