Adam Lechowicz


I am a first-year PhD student in the Manning College of Information and Computer Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where I am advised by Mohammad Hajiesmaili and Prashant Shenoy.

I work at the intersection of theory and systems, with an emphasis on problems that hold implications for energy, equity, and climate change. From a theoretical perspective, I am interested in designing algorithms for online optimization, particularly of the learning-augmented or provably fair types. On the application side, I am especially interested in efforts which promote the decarbonization of energy systems and computing infrastructure.

Through my research, I strive to advance ideals of social, racial, economic, and environmental justice.
