I am an assistant professor in the Department of Management Science and Information Systems at Rutgers University. Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems of MIT, hosted by Professors Asu Ozdaglar and Pablo Parrilo. Before that I received my PhD from the Courant Institute of New York University, my diploma from Ecole Polytechnique, and my B.Sc. degrees in electrical engineering and mathematics from Bogazici University as a valedictorian.

Research Interests: My interests lie broadly in optimization and computational science driven by applications in large-scale information, decision and infrastructure systems. My work draws and extends ideas and tools from convex optimization, probability and control of systems.
