I'd joined IBM Labs (India) in October 2015. My research interests fall at the intersection of mathematical optimization and machine learning. From the standpoint of practice, these cover applications ranging from automotive design, groundwater modeling, and power markets to backend analytics in retail and portfolio management.
Prior to joining IBM, I'd worked for Argonne National Labs and Oracle Analytics (both in the United States). I hold a PhD from Penn State, a Masters from UIUC (Illinois), and a Bachelors from College of Engg. Guindy, Chennai, India. Besides applied research, I'm very much into solver development and theoretical aspects of variational inequalities. Please feel free to reach out to me if I can be of any help - links to some of my old software can be found in the last tab above.
