Personal profile

Research interests

My research is broadly centered around applying operational research tools and techniques on supply chain management and logistics problems. More specifically, I focus on developing exact and heuristic solution approaches for real-world problems in areas including, but not limited to disaster relief, not-for-profit logistics, warehouse management, and material handling.
