Ph.D. Students on the Job Market

A number of ORIE Ph.D. students are looking for employment opportunities.

Raul Astudillo

Raul AstudilloSummary:
Raul's research lies at the interface between operations research and machine learning, with a focus on developing algorithms for efficient data collection. Recently, his work has centered around the design and analysis of Bayesian optimization algorithms for problems exhibiting a nested structure. His algorithms have found application in a wide range of domains, such as risk-averse simulation optimization of COVID-19 testing policies, multi-objective portfolio optimization with user preferences, and reinforcement learning-based robot control. He is currently looking for postdoctoral and faculty positions for the next academic year.

Amy B.Z. Zhang

Amy B Z ZhangSummary:
Amy’s research focuses on developing and analyzing approximation algorithms to solve dynamic programming problems, specifically by combining the low-rank infrastructure of state aggregation with PDE analysis, to obtain efficiency and guarantee simultaneously. She also has strong interest in recommender systems, in terms of both the technical and societal aspects, and working to produce solutions that could advance both. She is looking for opportunities to research and build technical solutions in impact-driven teams, especially in machine learning, optimization, and reinforcement learning, starting Fall 2022.
