NDSEG Fellow


Dr. Paul's research focuses on the design and analysis of algorithms, including the optimization algorithms underlying bike-share systems, machine learning and other applications. Her interest in algorithms stems from the puzzle-solving nature of these problems and the fun mix of computer science and math. Before joining Olin, she was a Data Science Postdoctoral Research Associate at Brown University, studying new methods for clustering data points. Dr. Paul earned her Ph.D. in Operations Research from Cornell University, where her thesis centered around developing efficient, data-driven algorithms for revenue management problems under probabilistic customer choice models. She also received her B.S. in Mathematics from Harvey Mudd College.
