Areas of Research

Healthcare Operations Research, Machine Learning, Human-AI interaction, Behavioral Operations

In the evolving landscape of healthcare management, my research journey converges at the intersection of artificial intelligence (AI) and healthcare operations research. The future of healthcare hinges on harnessing the potential of machine learning and enhancing Human-AI interaction. I am committed to not only improving patient outcomes but also prioritizing the well-being of clinicians. My upcoming projects include designing dynamic patient-centered warning systems that adapt to real-time clinician needs, optimizing drug interaction alerts to mitigate alert fatigue among clinicians, and addressing healthcare disparities with AI-driven healthcare thresholds for cancer screening. By focusing on these critical aspects, my research seeks to drive innovation, reduce healthcare disparities, and ultimately make tangible improvements in patient care and healthcare delivery

Revenue Management

In the realm of revenue management, my research has centered on assortment optimization and flexible product strategies. In a constantly evolving commercial landscape, understanding customer preferences is vital. My work in assortment optimization has unveiled the inherent complexity of this challenge, but I have developed practical algorithms to offer businesses near-optimal solutions. Additionally, my research on firm-centric and customer-centric flexible products provides insights into leveraging flexibility for revenue enhancement and improved seat capacity. These findings hold the potential to unlock new revenue streams and optimize operations for businesses in today's competitive marketplace.
