Short bio

Andreas S. Schulz is Professor of Mathematics of Operations Research and Holder of the Patrick J. McGovern (1959) Chair at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), which he joined as a member of the faculty in 1998. He is a faculty member of MIT's Sloan School and of MIT's Operations Research Center, former head of the Operations Research and Statistics Group at Sloan, and a former member of the Singapore-MIT Alliance. He has held visiting research professorships in the Institute of Theoretical Computer Science at ETH Zurich and in the Department of Quantitative Economics at Maastricht University. Other visiting positions led him to the University of British Columbia, to Eindhoven University of Technology, and to Technische Universität München. He got his Ph.D. in Mathematics from the Technische Universität Berlin in 1996. His research interests include algorithmic game theory, approximation algorithms, combinatorial optimization, computational complexity, integer programming, network flows, polyhedral combinatorics, and scheduling theory. In 2010, he received the Humboldt Research Award in recognition of his lifetime achievements in research. Earlier, the German Academy of Sciences Leopoldina and the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities had named him one of 20 founding members of "Die Junge Akademie." Other honors include the Best Paper Award of the Transportation Science & Logistics Society of INFORMS, the Glover-Klingman Prize, the Carl-Ramsauer-Prize, and awards for excellence in teaching. He has been on the editorial boards of several journals, including ACM Transactions on Algorithms, Discrete Optimization, INFORMS Journal on Computing, Journal of Scheduling, and Operations Research.
