Nico Christianson

I am a first-year PhD student in Computing and Mathematical Sciences at Caltech, where I am advised by Steven Low and Adam Wierman. In my research, I am broadly interested in designing algorithms for online optimization, control, and learning, with a particular emphasis toward applications in energy and sustainability.

Prior to my time at Caltech, I received my AB in applied math from Harvard. While at Harvard, I wrote a thesis on optimizing solid electrolyte conductivity with disorder supervised by Boris Kozinsky; I also worked with Danielle Bassett’s group at Penn on semantic network structure and growth in math texts.


Mar 23, 2021 I have been awarded an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.
Jul 29, 2020 Just published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A: Architecture and evolution of semantic networks in mathematics texts, with Ann Sizemore Blevins and Danielle Bassett.
