# Combinatorial Optimization

I am excited about the intersection of Deep Learning and Combinatorial Optimization, and have focused on learning to solve the famous **Travelling Salesman Probelem (TSP)** with Graph Neural Networks.
My papers on end-to-end learning for TSP have been presented as invited talks at **INFORMS 2019** and **CORS 2021**, as well as a workshop poster at **NeurIPS 2019**.
I recommend reading my introductory blogposts on neural combinatorial optimization for a high-level overview.
My long-term goal is to develop neural networks for tackling previously un-encountered NP-hard problems, especially those that are non-trivial to design heuristics for.

I was also awarded the **Best Final Year Project Gold Medal** by NTU, Singapore for my Bachelor’s thesis with Prof. Xavier Bresson.
