Team: Mr Radu Baltean-Lugojan (PhD student), Dr Pierre Bonami (IBM mentor), Dr Ruth Misener (Imperial mentor)
The IBM PhD Fellowship Awards Program is an intensely competitive worldwide program, which honors exceptional PhD students who have an interest in solving problems that are important to IBM and fundamental to innovation in many academic disciplines and areas of study.
The Imperial Department of Computing published a news article celebrating Radu’s success here. Radu used the fellowship to study cutting planes for nonconvex nonlinear optimisation problems. The publication that he wrote in collaboration with Dr Pierre Bonami, Dr Andrea Tramontani, and myself is here.
