Jelena

I am a Microsoft Research Fellow at the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing, associated with the program on Foundations of Data Science, and a postdoc at UC Berkeley's Foundations of Data Analysis (FODA) Institute. In Spring 2020, I will join the Department of Computer Sciences at University of Wisconsin-Madison as an Assistant Professor.

My main research interests are in the area of large-scale optimization. I am also interested in applications of optimization methods, particularly those pertaining to networked systems. Some of the networking applications I am currently interested in are network congestion control and full-duplex wireless networks.

Prior to starting a postdoctoral position at UC Berkeley, I was a Postdoctoral Associate at the Department of Computer Science, Boston University, where I worked with Prof. Lorenzo Orecchia. I completed my Ph.D. at the Department of Electrical Engineering, Columbia University, where I was co-advised by Profs. Gil Zussman and Cliff Stein.

Most of my current publications are under my maiden name -- Marašević.
