About me
I am a consulting software engineer based in Auckland, New Zealand.
I received my Ph.D. in Operations Research from the University of Auckland in 2019, advised by Andy Philpott, Andrew Mason, and Anthony Downward.
Projects I am involved in

JuMP:
an opensource modeling language for mathematical optimization

dairyanalytics.co.nz:
a project forecasting the price of milk in New Zealand

SDDP.jl:
a generic opensource solver for sequential decision problems
