Research Interests

My research interests include:

  • Stochastic modeling and control of healthcare and service systems.
  • Data analytics in healthcare.
  • Applied optimization.

My primary research interests are in the area of Healthcare Systems Engineering (HSE), which is an emerging branch of Engineering intended to investigate the fundamental principles governing healthcare systems operations, and utilize them for analysis, continuous improvement, control, and design. The goal of my research is to develop rigorous quantitative models and first-principle-based methods for healthcare system operations management and improvement, and apply the results on the hospital or clinic floor.
