Constantine Caramanis

 
I am an Associate Professor in the ECE department of The University of Texas at Austin. I received a PhD in EECS from The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS), and an AB in Mathematics from Harvard University. I received the NSF CAREER award in 2011. 

My current research interests focus on decision-making in large-scale complex systems, with a focus on learning and computation. Specifically, I am interested in robust and adaptable optimization, high dimensional statistics and machine learning, and applications to large-scale networks, including social networks, wireless networks, transportation networks, and energy networks. I also work on applications of machine learning and optimization to computer-aided design. 

News and Announcements
**I am on leave for 2013-2014, at The Technion, in Haifa**
Large Scale Optimization and Learning: Sujay Sanghavi and I will teach this two-part course on large-scale optimization and learning again in Fall 2014 / Spring 2015. 

Apply for a Simons Post Doc position: We are looking for our new batch of Simons Post Docs. The areas of interest are diverse, including networks, learning, optimization, stochastics, communication, and beyond.

Undergraduate Student Projects
RideShare: A senior design project by Yoni Ben-Meshulam, Garrett Cooper, Derrick Huhn, and Patrick Lowry.

Prospective Students
I am always on the lookout for motivated graduate students with a strong mathematical background and interested in theory. I am also looking for students with experience or interest in working with large scale systems -- in particular, large scale data and learning problems, and large-scale optimization.
I am looking for undergraduate students interested in doing senior design projects in the general area of energy and efficiency (including renewable energy and conservation) using tools from Machine Learning, Communications/Wireless, and Algorithms.
