From September 2010 to June 2012 I was an Assistant Professor of Industrial Engineering at the Swanson School of Engineering of University of Pittsburgh. I joined the MIT Sloan School of Management in July 2012. I have been affiliated with the MIT Operations Research Center since 2012.

My research interests include:
