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.

Here is a list of publications.
