Senior Research Scientist, ICSI
Lecturer, IEOR and Computer Science, UC Berkeley
Previously I was a tenured faculty member in Operations Research at Cornell University, before that on the tenured faculty of Economics at Rutgers University and an Assistant Professor in the Business School at Duke University. I received my PhD (Operations Research) in 1992 and my MA (Physics) from UC Berkeley. I have consulted for a variety of companies, including IDT, eBay, AT&T, the International Monetary Fund and the Brattle Group.
