Operations Research and Statistics
The leading operations research and statistics faculty and students at MIT are studying how new optimization models and solution methods can be used to improve the efficiency and safety of transportation systems. Applications range from long-term planning to real-time operations. Recent research includes simulation-based optimization, robust optimization and stochastic optimization with applications for ridesharing route design, transit scheduling and airline pricing.
