Optimization is a scientific approach to decision-making for complex systems. It utilizes mathematical models that are abstract representations of the actual system. Due to its versatility and wide ranging impact, optimization serves as a keystone in operations research and analytics.

Our research spans theory, the design of algorithms, computational innovation, and modeling for a wide range of applications. We seek to develop flexible, robust, and scalable techniques that can handle complex mathematical structures arising from real-world problems.
