Why study optimization?

Optimization is ubiquitous to science and engineering. There is a clear demand on optimization both in terms of theoretical advancements as well as greater availability of graduates trained in (or at least, exposed to) the discipline. Even despite the recent tremendous advancements of our computational capacities and information technologies, there are many challenging applications that still require more advanced optimization tools and methods. The demand is even more evident in such a resource- and energy-rich province as Alberta, where there is an urgent need to dramatically improve –optimize– the efficiency of the natural-resource-exploratory industries.

My research pursues three intertwined directions: real-world applications, theory, and
numerical algorithms.
