Daniel Freund picDaniel Freund
Preferred Field: Academic

My research considers optimization problems that arise at the intersection of on-demand transportation and the sharing economy. During my Ph.D., I spent time as a Data Scientist both at Motivate, the operator of America’s largest bike-sharing systems, and at Lyft. There, I developed tools to cope with the operational challenges arising in such transportation systems; these motivated the theoretical models and novel algorithmic advances in my thesis, which in turn had impact on real-world decision-making.
