Operations research, production systems
My research philosophy is that of being problem motivated—that is, given a relevant, interesting, real-world application, develop and analyze mathematical models for the related problem. Of particular interest is the creation of novel, innovative application areas for Operations Research techniques. My solid Engineering background, coupled with an excellent, in-depth knowledge of a broad range of Operations Research techniques, give me the tools that are necessary for effectively performing this type of research activity.
Over the last several years, I have been active in the following research areas:
