Azam Asl

I am a second year PhD student in Computer Science at Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences in New York University. I am interested in Optimization (in particular Polynomial Optimization) and Numerical Linear Algebra. My advisor is Prof. Michael L. Overton. Before starting my doctorate studies I worked for a few years as a senior web developer. Prior to that, I got a master in Computer Science from New York University in 2012. My master thesis was under the supervision of Prof. Ernest Davis. The thesis and the source code can be found here. I received my bachelor of science degree from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, in Computer Engineering in 2008.
