I am an Associate Professor in
the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Lehigh University
in Bethlehem, PA. I also serve as a co-director for the Master of Science
in Analytical Finance at Lehigh.
My current research focuses on robust optimization applied to
health care financing under uncertainty. For those of you interested in
engineering education and research, or in my work at a non-technical level,
you might want to take a look at my blog here.
I hold a SM and a PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer
Science from MIT and joined Lehigh University in 2004. I was promoted to
Associate Professor with tenure in 2010. My research is or has been funded
in part by the National Science Foundation (grants DMI-0540143 and
CMMI-0757983), an IBM Faculty Award and a Lehigh Faculty Innovation Grant.
