Jelena

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at UC Berkeley's Foundations of Data Analysis (FODA) Institute. I will join the Department of Computer Sciences at University of Wisconsin-Madison as an Assistant Professor in Spring 2020. If interested in working with me, please apply to our graduate program.

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 and machine learning.

I was a Microsoft Research Fellow at the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing, associated with the program on Foundations of Data Science in Fall 2018. 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 Lorenzo Orecchia. I completed my Ph.D. at the Department of Electrical Engineering, Columbia University, where I was co-advised by Gil Zussman and Cliff Stein.

Many of my publications are under my maiden name -- Marašević.
