Projects

Integration of machine learning and operations research

As highlighted in Bengio et al. (2021), machine learning appears as a promising avenue to solve combinatorial optimization problems, directly or along operations research methods. My projects along this theme include:

Another somewhat related project is the use of constrained optimization for causal inference.

Logistics, transportation and healthcare applications

I also have several projects on demand forecasting, inventory management, supplier selection and scheduling. Some of which are more theoretical while others are more applied. Several of these logistics projects are related to the COVID-19 pandemic and thus are related to healthcare. Finally, I also have some pure healthcare projects, e.g., medical decision making for the management of treatment-resistant depression.
