Jacob M. Aguirre is an Operations Research Ph.D. student at the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) at Georgia Institute of Technology. He is grateful to be advised by Professors Renato D.C. Monteiro and Anton Kleywegt. Prior to beginning his Ph.D., Jacob was a B.S./M.S. student at Georgia Tech in Economics and Mathematics. Aguirre's primary research interests lie solely in theory and algorithms of convex optimization, particularly in investigating complexity and developing efficiently computable algorithms for nonlinear and stochastic programming.

His research is generously supported by multiple fellowships and awards through the National Science Foundation GRFP, Department of Energy, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Georgia Institute of Technology, Ernst & Young fellowship, H. Milton Stewart fellowship, and the GEM PhD Fellowship.
