overview

About Dr. Rajgopal: Dr. Rajgopal's primary interests are in the theory and methodology of operations research, and its applications to operational problems. He also has an interest in statistical methods, data mining and analytics. His theoretical and methodological focus areas lie mainly in deterministic and continuous optimization. With respect to applications, his primary interests are in the broad field of production, supply chains and operations analysis, including such topics as distribution and logistics, inventory control, and process improvement. He is currently focusing on healthcare delivery, including the modeling and optimizing of vaccine distribution systems, hospital logistics and medical inventory management. In the past he has worked on topics such as geometric programming (a special class of convex, nonlinear programs), systems reliability optimization, applications of radio frequency identification (RFID) systems, and lean manufacturing. Dr. Rajgopal is a Fellow of the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE), a member of the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), and the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE). He is also a registered professional engineer in the state of Pennsylvania.
