Errata: Algorithms 5 & 7 have a typo in the last couple lines, where the dimension s is written. It should be p. The code is written correctly.

Past work and interests
Train schedule optimization
In the summer of 2015, I spent two months at the Zuse Institut Berlin working on train schedule optimization as a part of GRIPS (Graduate-level Research in Industrial Projects for Students), a program coordinated in part by the Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics. A summary of my team's work is provided as a technical report.
As an undergraduate at Temple University, I researched traffic modeling under Benjamin Seibold. I presented my work, Five Dimensions of Traffic as a poster for the 2012 Undergraduate Research Symposium at Temple University and also for Mid-Atlantic Numerical Analysis Day 2012.
