Research

My research interests include probabilistic modeling, simulation and optimization from a methodological standpoint, and the majority of my current and previous work involves applying these techniques to solve problems in healthcare delivery, biomedical systems, and health economics. However, I have worked in other areas as well, including applying machine learning and optimization techniques to problems in finance, airport operations, manufacturing automation, etc.
