I joined the mathematics department at Princeton University on Feb. 1st, 2016 as an instructor, then as an assistant professor July 1st, 2018. I interact closely with PACM (the program in applied mathematics).
I am an applied mathematician working on optimization, statistical estimation and numerical analysis. Much of what I do is related to nonconvex optimization and optimization on manifolds. For the latter, I develop a toolbox called Manopt. A reference in this field is the book Optimization Algorithms on Matrix Manifolds.
