The research interests of our group lie in making smart decisions for decentralized network-centric systems. More specifically, we develop analytical models (stochastic optimization models, stochastic processes, statistical learning methods, etc.) to understand, analyze and manage network-centric systems such as disrupted infrastructure networks, relief/healthcare networks, disease propagation in social networks, commercial supply networks, and ecological networks of water reservoirs. 


We are accepting applications for a joint Ph.D. position in the School of Computing and Information Sciences & Enterprise and Logistics Engineering program at FIU for Fall 2020. 

This position requires strong mathematical and programming background, and definitely and enthusiasm for working tirelessly and effectively. Applicants are required to submit their most recent C.V. focusing on their prior research in healthcare and resilient infrastructure. Scholars with backgrounds in computer science, mathematics, and ISE are welcome to apply.
