I work on artificial intelligence, privacy, and machine learning. My recent work focuses on (1) how to make AI algorithms better aligned with societal values, especially privacy and fairness, and (2) how to use machine learning for solving complex optimization problems. I study these questions using methods and models from optimization, differential privacy, and multiagent systems. For more details, please see my publications.University of Udine (with dual degree from the New Mexico State University). My doctoral dissertation titled "Exploiting the Structure of Distributed Constrained Optimization" received a AI*IA award for best AI dissertation.
Before joining Syracuse University, I was a postdoctoral research associate at the Georgia Institute of Technology and a research fellow at the University of Michigan. For more details, please see my CV.
