Research

My research focuses mainly on network optimization and interdiction. In my recent research, I have focused on the applications of bilevel programming, how to effectively (re)formulate, and apply cutting-plane/decomposition algorithms. Another aspect of my research interests is to apply heuristic approaches to large-scale optimization problems.
