Affiliation and Research Interests

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Center for Computational Sciences and Engineering (CCSE) in the Computational Research Division of the Computing Sciences Area at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

Broadly, my research is on Decision Making under Uncertainty. More specifically, I work on various aspects of Stochastic Programming and Distributionally Robust Optimization and their applications to groundwater management, water allocation, and energy problems. Currenlty, I am involved in three projects

  1. Enabling Water-Energy Decision Support Using Watershed-scale Surrogate Models (LRDR),
  2. Institute for the Design of Advanced Energy Systems (IDAES),
  3. National Alliance for Water Innovation (NAWI).


I received my PhD in Operations Research from the Ohio State University in May 2019. My dissertation research studied stochastic optimization, particularly variance reduction for sequential sampling procedure in stochastic programming and data-driven distributionally robust optimization with applications in water resources management.
