I am a research fellow in the Simons Institute at UC Berkeley in the Data-Driven Decision Processes program. In January 2023, I will join NYU Stern as an assistant professor in the Department of Technology, Operations and Statistics. I recently obtained a PhD in Operations Research from MIT, advised by Prof. Vivek Farias.
Broadly, my research develops machine learning algorithms for decision making, focusing on efforts to bridge theory to practice. I am interested in studying the societal impact of algorithms (e.g. fairness in algorithmic hiring), as well as designing practical algorithms for impactful applications (e.g. global health).Email: baek (at) stern (dot) nyu (dot) edu
