The website of the Lecture LV 19228801 on "Convex Optimization" (WS 2016/2017) is online.

Who I am

I am a post-doc fellow working at ZIB (Zuse Institute Berlin), and I am hired by the Charité hospital in Berlin for the cooperation project OPOSSUM (OPtimization Of Surgery Scheduling with Uncertain Models). I am also a co-head of DoE for HPC , an interdisciplinary project in which we develop algorithms for the design of supercomputer experiments, and a member of TOLLCONTROLOPT, for which I am studying game theoretical aspects of fare inspection problems in transportation networks. I am the original author of the python package PICOS, an interface to several conic and mixed integer programming solvers.

During my PhD, which was supervised by Stéphane Gaubert (INRIA Saclay), I developped optimization techniques for the computation of large scale optimal experimental designs, with an application in telecoms (estimation of origin-destination flows in networks).

Fields of interest
