My research interests include optimal and robust control theory, mathematical programming, data privacy & sensitivity, and theoretical aspects of cyber-physical systems. Applications of interest include optimal power flow problems, smart grids, and systems biology.

I’m an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Columbia University. From 2016 to ’19 I was a senior research scientist in Computing + Mathematical Sciences at the California Institute of Technology. Prior to Caltech I held a Junior Research Fellowship at the University of Oxford, where I was a member of St John’s College and the Department of Engineering Science. I obtained my DPhil (PhD) from Oxford in Engineering Science in 2012.
