Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am interested in the intersection of Econometrics and Machine Learning.
Ph.D. Student in Computational and Mathematical Engineering, admitted Autumn 2017
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy current research interests are related to a category of large scale, convex and non-convex optimization problems that arise in the context of waveform inversion.The non-convexity of the problem presents interesting mathematical challenges, while the huge amounts of data that need to be processed present significant computational challenges.
I'm also interested in topological data analysis which enables qualitative analysis of data. I'm looking at using this tool for analysis of seismic data.

BioSaunders develops mathematical methods for solving large-scale constrained optimization problems and large systems of equations. He also implements such methods as general-purpose software to allow their use in many areas of engineering, science, and business. He is co-developer of the large-scale optimizers MINOS, SNOPT, SQOPT, PDCO, the dense QP and NLP solvers LSSOL, QPOPT, NPSOL, and the linear equation solvers SYMMLQ, MINRES, MINRES-QLP, LSQR, LSMR, LSRN, LUSOL.

BioI graduated from BYU with a double major in Mathematics and Economics.
After BYU, I began working as an actuary at Mutual of Omaha Insurance Company working on the company's proprietary economic capital model, which helps to quantify the 99.5% VaR exposure of the company. I am currently an ASA designated actuary.
During the most recent summer I worked at Transamerica Insurance Company as a C# developer automating a lot of the processes the company uses for their insurance products.
My academic interests include quantitative finance, machine learning, and AI.
My current academic goal is to complete my Joint Degree at Stanford.
