I am a senior research scientist at Google Zurich office. Prior to moving to Zurich, I was at the New York office where I started my career at Google in January 2014. Prior to Google, I did my PhD in computer science at MIT (CSAIL) under supervision of Professor Erik D. Demaine. I work on applying optimization techniques to various practical problems in order to find provably efficient algorithms. In particular, I am interested in Submodular Optimization and its applications in large scale data mining and machine learning problems.
