My research lies at the interface of operations research and information systems. I look at problems in information aggregation, telecommunications, operations management, and production analysis using non-linear and linear optimization, game theory, and statistics. If you have any questions about any of the work listed, then please contact me. Following Tri-agency policy, I have recent papers publicly available on the University of Waterloo paper repository
