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'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.

Networks Class Student Projects

For the Networks class in winter of 2011, the students had to do a quarter-long network modeling project.  They selected a network of interest to them, modeled the network's operation, and modeled the networks resiliency.  We had a number of excellent class projects during the quarter.  All of.....


Two New Talk Videos

The Talks page has two new talk videos from conferences earlier this year.  The first talk is on Design of Influenza Surveillance Networks and was delivered at INFORMS ICS 2011 in Monterey, California and CORS 2011 in St. John's, Newfoundland.  In that talk, we discuss how to design a.....
