Ned Dimitrov

Hello, my name is Ned Dimitrov. I am an Assistant Professor in the ORIE Program at The University of Texas at Austin.  My research is in network modeling and optimization with applications to disease control and security.  Specifically, my research deals with identifying valuable information for decision making.

Prior to joining UT, I worked for 4 years in Operations Research at the Naval Postgraduate School. Previously, I was a post-doc in the Operations Research Program at UT Austin. I graduated from the UT Computer Science department in May 2008.

My office is in ETC 5.118.  You may contact me through email using ned at austin dot utexas dot edu.

I recently posted five new student thesis in the Students section.  My first PhD student, Christian Klaus, graduated in 2014.  I was also fortunate enough to work with a set of wonderful master's students: Duncan Ellis, Liz Farrar, Trisha Cobb, and Chris Wood.

New Videos: Research and Operations Management Lectures

2013-08-26 10:48:12

I've posted a research talk by Christian Klaus, a Ph.D. student working with me in Operations Research at NPS.  His talk is on introducing warehouses into a stochastic logistic network to increase reliability.  I've also added a set of Operations Management Lecture Videos.  That is almost 30 hours of lectures on mathematical decision making in corporations, ranging from forecasting to inventory control and project management.
