James Saunderson 

I am currently a Lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. In June 2015 I completed my PhD in EECS at MIT where I was part of the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS). From June 2015-June 2016 I was a Research Associate (postdoc) at the University of Washington and a Postdoctoral Scholar at Caltech.


PhD positions

I am currently looking for PhD students who are interested in doing foundational research in mathematical optimisation and its applications. If you have a strong mathematical background, and an interest in developing new computational methods, with performance guarantees, for problems in areas such as signal processing, statistics, and machine learning, please contact me.
