Hi, this is J.J. Zhu. I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow funded by the European Union. I focus on numerical optimization/optimal control as well as machine learning.

Training & short bio

I am an applied mathematician by training. I received doctoral training in numerical optimization and statistics during my PhD study with Prof. William Hager at the University of Florida.

Currently, I am undergoing postdoctoral training in machine learning (mentored by Prof. Bernhard Schölkopf) as well as in optimization and control (jointly mentored by Prof. Moritz Diehl). I greatly appreciate this opportunity to learn from many experts (senior and junior) in the greater Europe area.

Research interests

  • Numerical analysis & optimization
  • Robust/stochastic/mixed-integer optimization & control
  • Machine learning
  • Applications to robotics
