I am an Assistant Professor in the Wm Michael Barnes ’64 Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Texas A&M University. Prior to joining Texas A&M, I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Industrial Engineering & Management Sciences at Northwestern University, working under the supervision of Professors Matthew Plumlee and Barry Nelson. I received a Ph.D. in Operations Research in 2019 from Cornell University, where I was advised by Professor Shane Henderson, and a B.S. in Industrial Engineering in 2014 from the University of Pittsburgh.
My research focuses on the use of stochastic simulation for decision-making under uncertainty. This encompasses everything from the design and analysis of ranking-and-selection (R&S) procedures to the comparison of simulation-optimization (SO) algorithms to the development of new methods for simulation output analysis.
