About Me

I am an Associate Professor in the Division of Decision, Risk, and Operations at Columbia Business School. My primary research interests are in data-driven modeling of complex stochastic systems, dynamic optimization, and queueing with applications in health-care operations management. My current focus is on combining empirical approaches with mathematical modeling to develop evidence-based approaches to improving patient flow through hospitals, and particularly intensive care units.

I completed my PhD at the Information Systems Laboratory in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. I did my undergraduate studies at MIT
