We are actively seeking talents to join our research group. Positions are open for postdocs, PhD students, undergraduates, and visiting researchers, beginning in the Fall of 2024.
Our research group is dedicated to tackling the mathematical, computational, and practical challenges involved in making systematic decisions in complex systems. We strive to make contributions in the fields of mathematical optimization, control theory, machine learning, process systems engineering, and energy systems.
Here are some of our specific research interests:
- Developing scalable algorithms capable of addressing challenging decision-making problems in various engineering and society domains.
- Advancing our understanding and developing algorithms for machine learning methods in control problems.
- Building computational infrastructure for scalable and data-driven decision-making by harnessing the capabilities of modern high-performance computing, particularly through the use of GPU computing.
- Making tangible impacts in decision-making practices within the domains of process systems engineering and energy systems by introducing new modeling paradigms, algorithms, and software tools.
