Mutiara Sondjaja


I am a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, NYU. I completed my Ph.D. at the School of Operations Research and Information Engineering at Cornell University in August 2014, advised by James Renegar.

At NYU, my primary interests and responsibilities are undergraduate teaching and advising. I maintain active research interests in continuous optimization (in particular, interior-point methods for conic optimization problems).
