A little about me:

The primary reason I continued into graduate school was to creatively solve problems that make an impact while challenging myself in the process. My Master's thesis focused on optimization of river-reservoir systems with multi-objective particle swarm optimization for preserving eco-hydrologic sustainability. Working in the field of water management, I became very interested in optimization in complex river systems. I am currently pursuing my Ph.D. studies at Oregon State University in Corvallis (main campus of Oregon State University). My research focus on optimization of multi-reservoir systems under uncertainty.

Research Interests: Multi-objective optimization in complex river systems, unsteady flows, computer programming, parallel computing and computational hydraulics, Uncertainty Quantification

Personal interest: Teaching, Cooking, Reading
