About me

Welcome! I am currently a postdoctoral associate in the MIT Humanitarian Supply Chain Lab at the MIT Center for Transportation and Logistics. While at CTL, I will lead a FEMA-sponsored project with the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine that focuses on private sector supply chain resiliency, adaptability, and preparedness during natural disasters.

In August 2018, I will join the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at the University of Wisconsin - Madison as an Assistant Professor. I am currently accepting applications for both Master's and PhD students!

My research involves combining optimization and machine learning to improve the quality, access, and delivery of health care. I am particularly interested in global health and I have led projects in both Dhaka, Bangladesh and Hyderabad, India. I am also actively pursuing drone delivery applications in health care, such as using drones to deliver defibrillators to cardiac arrest incidents.
