Drew's research interests include: PDE-constrained optimization, algorithms for solving risk-averse and robust PDE-constrained optimization problems, adaptive sampling and quadrature methods for risk-averse optimization, general frameworks to handle inexactness and model adaptivity in optimization.  Drew is also a lead developer of the Rapid Optimization Library (ROL) which is a software package for matrix-free, derivative-based optimization.

Education/Background

Drew earned his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Mathematics from Case Western Reserve University in 2008, including a minor in Spanish.  In 2010, he earned his M.A. in Computational and Applied Mathematics from Rice University.  Under the supervision of M. Heinkenschloss, he earned his Ph.D. in Computational and Applied Mathematics from Rice University in 2012 with dissertation "An Approach for the Adaptive Solution of Optimization Problems Governed by Partial Differential Equations with Uncertain Coefficients."  After obtaining his Ph.D., Drew served as the J.H. Wilkinson Fellow at Argonne National Laboratory before joining Sandia National Laboratories in 2013.
