- In the upcoming Spring semester (2020/2021) I will be teaching a course “Optimization under Uncertainty” 096335 in the Technion. In this course I will cover theoretical and algorithmic framework for solving optimization in single- and multi-stage problems that incorporate parameter uncertainty. Specifically, we will discuss modeling and solution techniques for the case where the uncertainty is modeled using historical data.
- I am looking for graduate students and a postdoc which are interested in theory and application of optimization under uncertainty and data-driven optimization. Please contact me for more details.
I am an Assistant Professor in The William Davidson Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology.
I received my Ph.D. from the Technion in 2015. Thesis on “Robust Tracking via Semidefinite Programming and Noncovex Quadratically Constrained Quadratic Programming”, with advisor Prof. Aharon Ben-Tal
I received my M.Sc. in Operations Research and System Analysis in 2008 and my B.Sc. in Industrial Engineering and Management in 2002, both from Technion.
