Welcome to my home page! Here you can find descriptions of my teaching, research, and other fun stuff. My research focuses mainly on various aspects of discrete optimization and spans both theory and computation. To see what I’m up to, check out the links below. If you want to read articles from the popular press about the kinds of things I work on, click here. You can also find me in some of the usual places. Professionally, my primary social media platforms are Twitter, Google+, Github, Mendeley, and Figshare (for publishing software). I’m half-heartedly on Research Gate, too.
- I may or may not start to blog, depending on whether I ever get around to posting anything more here (so far, not! But 2017 is a brand new year!).
- Want to know what “code” is? How a computer works? Read this. Great stuff!
- Endorse the Science Code Manifesto.
- How does one model a concrete problem? What is an abstraction? How are models validated? Find out here.
- Here’s an article in Forbes about Schneider National’s use of optimization.
- Here is a recent video explaining what industrial engineering is.
- There was an article in the New York Times about the abundance of jobs requiring knowledge of statistics.
- There was an article in the NY Times about applying operations research techniques to hospitals.
- A recent NPR program explained what algorithms are.

“In science, if you know what you are doing, you should not be doing it. In engineering, if you do not know what you are doing, you should not be doing it. Of course, you seldom, if ever, see either pure state.”
