Dr. Siddhartha Maheshwary’s BIO:

Sid got his PhD from the Georgia Tech School of ISyE in 2008 under the advisement of Eva K. Lee. His thesis focused on theory related to cutting planes derived from hypergraph structures found in 0-1 integer programs, and parallel computation for solving integer programming instances. As part of his graduate research, he also developed the RealOpt Simulation-Optimization system used for disaster planning and emergency response preparation. This work received the INFORMS Pierskalla Award in 2005. Upon graduation, he worked for a year at a small startup company in Atlanta where he developed manufacturing and logistics optimization applications. After that he joined the Crew Reroute Group at Delta Airlines, where he is currently working.
