About me

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the London School of Economics and Political Science, and I am the Programme Director for the MSc Operations Research and Analytics programme.

I received my PhD from Princeton University from the Department of Operations Research and Financial Engineering. A major component of my research has been in developing algorithms to solve discrete deterministic and stochastic optimization problems that arise in dynamic resource allocation problems with applications involving physical resources (transportation networks, drone routing for disaster management), radio resource allocation (wireless communication networks), and financial optimisation problems. I have also been working on game theoretic problems - search and patrolling games - for network security. Recently, I have been working on applying reinforcement learning in game theoretic problems - (Multiagent Reinforcement Learning - MARL). I am also associate editor of Optimization Letters and a member of INFORMS and IEEE.
