Albert S. Berahas
Albert S. Berahas joined the Industrial and Systems Engineering Department at Lehigh University as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in September 2018. He is currently working with Professors Katya Scheinberg, Frank Curtis, and Martin Takáč. Prior to this appointment, he was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences Department at Northwestern University. Albert obtained his Ph.D. in Engineering Sciences and Applied Mathematics (ESAM) at Northwestern University in 2018. He received his undergraduate degree in Operations Research and Industrial Engineering from Cornell University in 2009, and his M.S. in Applied Mathematics in 2012 from Northwestern University. Berahas has received the ESAM Outstanding Teaching Assistant Award, the Walter P. Murphy Fellowship, and the John N. Nicholson Fellowship. Berahas' research interests include optimization algorithms for machine learning, convex optimization and analysis, derivative-free optimization, and distributed optimization.
