I am a 3rd year PhD candidate at the Unviersity of Wisconsin-Madison in chemical and biological engineering working under Professor Victor Zavala. My research interests include graph-based representations and optimization, energy systems, and process systems engineering.

Many optimization problems can be represented as a graph to provide useful visualization and to allow for manipulating and exploiting problem structure. We use Plasmo.jl (which extends JuMP.jl) to build optimization problems within a graph structure (where optimization model components are stored within the nodes and edges of the graph), and we use the nonlinear interior-point solver, MadNLP.jl, to solve these models and exploit some of these graph structures.
