Oliver Hinder
Assistant Professor
Department of Industrial Engineering

Dr. Oliver Hinder's research focuses on continuous optimization, with a penchant for local optimization methods such as gradient descent. Dr. Hinder aims to develop reliable and efficient algorithms built on solid mathematical foundations. This research is motivated by applications in network optimization and machine learning that push the limits of current computational capabilities. Before joining the University of Pittsburgh, Oliver was a visiting postdoctoral researcher at Google in the Optimization and Algorithms group in New York. In 2019, he received his Ph.D. from the Department of Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University under the supervision of Professor Yinyu Ye.
