I am happy to talk with enthusiastic graduate students admitted to the Operations ResearchAlgorithms Combinatorics and Optimization or the Machine Learning PhD programs at Georgia Tech.

Current Student Mentees at Georgia Tech: 

  • Seyma Gurkan: 3rd year graduate student. Project: Robust and Stochastic Load Balancing. (advised by Sebastian Pokutta)
  • Cyrus Hettle: 2nd year ACO graduate student. Project: Fairness in Optimization.
  • Hassan Ahmed Mortagy: 1st year graduate student. Project: Convex Minimization over flows.
  • Daniel Ulch: 1st year graduate student. Project: Learning over permutations.
  • Nicole M Redder: 1st year graduate student. Project: Testing Total Unimodularity (advised by Santanu Dey).
  • Michael Wang: senior undergraduate student. Project: Fairness in Inventory Routing, Learning over permutations.
