I've had the great pleasure of teaming of with the star statistician in my cohort, Liyan Xie, in elevating the COVID-19 dashboard to include sophisticated prediction tools! Her experience includes statistics and optimization in a wide variety of fields, including sensor networks, healthcare, and industrial quality control. Check out her website yourself!
Pinar introduced me to health systems, and she has been an invaluable advisor for my journey into this field! You may know her as the 2020 president of INFORMS, but did you know she is also the co-founder and director of the Center for Health and Humanitarian Systems at Georgia Tech? Truly a premiere researcher in the healthcare field and an icon in our community! Together, Pinar, Julie Swann, and I formed a team to assist the Guinea Worm Eradication Program by developing an agent-based simulation model for Guinea worm disease. More recently, Pinar and I worked together to create an interactive dashboard that visualizes the data for COVID-19 cases across Georgia.
An exemplary expert on logistics and transportation, and future faculty extraordinaire! Reem started in my cohort, and has been a treasure in our department. Please check out Reem's website to learn more about her research on system optimization and design under uncertainty--not to mention her excellence in service and teaching!
Natashia has been my primary advisor during my doctoral program. She is a Fouts Family Professor in the H. Milton Stewart School of ISYE at Georgia Tech, and an expert in the field of integer linear programming and discrete optimization.
Outstanding public health researcher and Department Head of UNC's Department of ISE. Julie co-founded and co-directed the Center for Health and Humanitarian Systems during her time at Georgia Tech. Also, we worked together with Pinar Keskinocak and The Carter Center on modeling Guinea Worm transmission in Chad dogs. Our work is published in The American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Health.
Extraordinary mathematician and fellow multiobjective specialist. PhD student in the Optimization Group at Technische Universität Kaiserslautern. Met at Recent Advances in Multiobjective Optimization conference in Arhus, Denmark 2019. Since then, we have been collaborating on a new weight space decomposition method using Tchebychev scalarization.
Constraint Programming extraodinaire. Awarded the Google Australia Eureka Prize for Innovation in Computer Science. Author of textbook "Programming with Constraints: an Introduction." Professor in the Faculty of Information Technology at Monash University in Melbourne, Victoria. This international research trip and continuing collaboration was made possible by the NSF Graduate Research Opportunities Worldwide. Together, Peter and I have been working on how to extend his expertise in dynamic programming to the multiobjective case, including knapsack and cutting stock problems.
