I have previously held executive level positions at 84.51, Frontline Systems and Nielsen, focusing on the practical application of advanced analytics to make sound business decisions.

In 2000 I received my PhD in computer science from the University of Iowa. I have published articles in various technical journals and books, hold several patents, presented at industry conferences and universities, and received the SIAG/OPT prize for outstanding paper in the field of optimization.
