I'm pretty.

My name is Matt Menickelly and you have reached my academic website.

If you were looking for anything else, I’m deeply and truly sorry, but you are in the wrong place.

I am a PhD student at Lehigh University in the Industrial and Systems Engineering Department, studying with Dr. Katya Scheinberg. My research can broadly be defined as continuous optimization, but I’m particularly interested in derivative-free optimization (DFO) and optimization models/methods for machine learning.

Follow the links in the upper right of this home page to see some of my research projects, read my CV, and some recordings of me playing the piano (we can’t be all business, can we?)
