I am an Assistant Professor of Operations Management in the Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University. My research primarily focuses on the application of predictive analytics and optimization methodologies to improve operational decisions in retailing. I got my PhD in Operations Management from the Wharton School, and worked at McKinsey and Company prior to that.
