Academic Career and Research Areas

The research of Andreas S. Schulz centers on the theoretical foundations of mathematical optimization and on solving optimization problems that arise in the context of communication networks, health care delivery, logistics, manufacturing, online advertising, supply chain management, transportation and other complex decision-making situations.
Prof. Schulz currently holds a professorship at the Center for Mathematics and the TUM School of Management. In 1998 he became a faculty member at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), most recently as the Patrick J. McGovern Chair of Management and Professor of Mathematics of Operations Research. Previously he was head of the operations research & statistics group at MIT’s Sloan School. He has held visiting positions at the Sauder School of Business of the University of British Columbia, at the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration of Maastricht University, at the Institute of Theoretical Computer Science at ETH Zurich, and at the Department of Mathematics of TU Berlin, from which he obtained his PhD in 1996.
