    I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Decision, Operations, and Information Technologies at the Robert H. Smith School of BusinessUniversity of Maryland. I have a joint appointment with the Institute for Systems Research at UMD. I received my Ph.D. from Princeton University in 2011. I am a co-author (with W.B. Powell) of the book Optimal Learning, available on Amazon.

    I work in the general area of business analytics, encompassing topics in optimization, probability, and statistics. More specifically, my research deals with decision-making under uncertainty, often with the additional dimension of information collection. Much of this work is theoretical and methodological, but I have also worked on applications in humanitarian/nonprofit operations, medical decision-making, revenue management, and transportation. Please see my homepage for more information.
