My primary research interests are in the areas of mathematical programming. I
have been working on design and analysis of efficient algorithms for discrete
optimization concerning matroids and submodular functions. I am also interested
in applications of discrete optimization techniques to algebraic/numerical
computation that arises in systems analysis and control.
