My interest is in combinatorial optimization and revenue management. Specifically, I am interested in designing approximation algorithms for NP-hard problems that arise in assortment optimization.

I work primarily in assortment optimization. In these problems we are given a model for how customers consume products and our objective is to find the "right" set of products to put on the shelves, or web page, to maximize revenue.


I am currently an Assistant Professor in the ISE Department at The University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign.
