My research interests are in the domains of Healthcare Analytics and Supply Chain Management. In the first domain, I'm interested in understanding how mathematical models can be applied to real-world problems in healthcare in order to inform, improve, and enhance medical decision-making and health policy. In the second, I'm interested in understanding how new business models, enabled by digital technology, can be harnessed to unlock hidden efficiencies in supply chains. I also have methodological interests in optimization theory and co-created Robust Optimization Made Easy (ROME), a software package for modeling robust optimization problems.
