I joined the Institute of Mathematics at EPFL on July 1st, 2020, where I run the chair of continuous optimization OPTIM.
My group works on optimization, statistical estimation and numerical analysis. Much of what we do is related to nonconvex optimization and optimization on manifolds. For the latter, we develop a toolbox called Manopt and I wrote a book.
As of Jan. 1st, 2022, I am an associate editor for Mathematical Programming.
The blog of my group is Race to the bottom.
