I am an Assistant Professor in the Management Science and Statistics department housed in the Alvarez College of Business at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA). I am also a Core Faculty member of the new School of Data Science at UTSA. Previously, I was a faculty member in the Applied Statistics and Operations Research department at Bowling Green State University. In addition to my doctoral work at the School of Industrial Engineering at Purdue University, I conducted research as a Visiting Research Fellow in the Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences department at Northwestern University.
My research is interdisciplinary and focuses on the use of robust optimization and data analytics to improve end-user outcomes in healthcare (for patients and providers), and in sustainable services (for marginalized populations). For patients and providers, I develop robust models for cancer radiotherapy, data-driven tools for treatment evaluation and quality control, as well as, scheduling models for diagnostics and operations. For marginalized communities, I seek to inform decision-makers on providing sustainable, equitable and resilient services using analytics and optimization.
In addition to my research and teaching endeavors, I am an active member of the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS) and the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM).
