I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Computational Applied Mathematics & Operations Research at Rice University. My research interests are in mixed integer programming with applications in resource allocation and logistics. My current research focus is in optimization for cloud computing; I am advised by Dr. Sebastian Perez-Salazar and Dr. Andrew J. Schaefer. I am interested in teaching and mentoring students in STEM, involving students in mathematical research, and creating initiatives that aim to increase the participation of underrepresented students in academia. Here is my CV.
