I am Senior Lecturer for Operations Research and a DECRA Fellow in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Melbourne. I am also an investigator in the Melbourne Centre for Data Science and an associate investigator of the ARC Training Centre in Optimisation Technologies, Integrated Methodologies, and Applications (OPTIMA).
I received a PhD in 2016 from the University of Newcastle (Australia) under the supervision of Jonathan Borwein where I was a member of the Centre for Computer-assisted Research Mathematics and its Applications (CARMA). My thesis was titled "Iterative projection and reflection methods: theory and practice". After my PhD, I moved to the University of Göttingen where I was a post-doctoral researcher supported by the RTG-2088 "Discovering structure in complex data: Statistics meets Optimization and Inverse Problems" and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. Prior to joining the University of Melbourne in 2020, I was Junior Professor for Mathematical Optimisation in the Institute for Numerical and Applied Mathematics at the University of Göttingen and a member of the Continuous Optimisation, Variational Analysis and Inverse Problems workgroup.
