Byron Tasseff is a fifth-year Ph.D. student in the department of Industrial and Operations Engineering and staff scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory. His general interests reside in the field of mixed-integer nonlinear optimization. Specifically, he is interested in problems constrained by physical phenomena involving fluids, e.g., large-scale flooding, potable water distribution, and natural gas transmission. Byron’s current research focuses on developing algorithmic techniques to solve challenging optimization problems involving these critical infrastructures.
