Interests

My interests lie in the field of Robust Optimization and its various applications. The goal of my research is to extend Robust Optimization to model the affect of varying uncertainty sets. This variation may be caused by the influence of the decision maker or by other uncertainties. The challenge arises from incorporating the dependence of the uncertainty model into the optimization problem. This usually leads to problems which are difficult to solve. My objective is to understand the reasons behind this difficult and discover special cases where it may be alleviated. This is beneficial as variable uncertainty models have applications in many areas such as transportation, machine learning, supply chain management, healthcare etc.
