About me

I am a DPhil (PhD) student at the Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford under the supervision of Prof. Paul Goulart and Prof. Mark Cannon in the Control Group. I am associated with Trinity College and supported by the Clarendon Scholarship.

Research interests

I am interested in model predictive control and optimization. My current project investigates ADMM algorithms to solve convex conic programs. I am especially focusing on improving computation times using chordal decomposition techniques and acceleration methods.

Software

COSMO.jl: An ADMM-based solver for convex conic problems
