**Research
** I do research in the general area of mathematical
optimization, trying to understand the structure behind continuous
optimization problems and exploit such structure in solution
analysis and algorithm design. Topics I have worked on include
sensitivity analysis of variational inequalities, the constant
rank constraint qualification, confidence regions and intervals
for stochastic variational inequalities, sensitivity analysis of
traffic user equilibria, and inference for sparse penalized
statistical regression.
