Romeil Sandhu is currently an Assistant Professor at Stony Brook with appointments in Bioinformatics, Computer Science, and Applied Mathematics & Statistics Departments and is the recipient of the AFOSR YIP Award for work on interactive feedback control for autonomous systems and NSF CAREER Award for work on geometric optimization and control of time-varying networks. He first received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from the Georgia Institute of Technology in Electrical Engineering in 2006 and 2009, respectively. Then, under the direction of Professor Allen Tannenbaum, he completed his Ph.D. in 2011. Prior to his academic position at Stony Brook, he formed a data science startup providing government services leading to a successful exit. His current research interest broadly focuses on formally developing theory to bridge the information gap to combat risk complexities associated with the "unknown unknown" (e.g., human interaction). This has included application areas that span complex networks, computer vision, learning, social analysis, biomedical informatics, and risk analysis with a common underlying interest lying on the intersection of geometry, statistics, and control.
