Patrick Jaillet - biographical sketch
Dr. Patrick Jaillet is the Dugald C. Jackson Professor in the
Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and a
member of the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems at
MIT. He holds a joint appointment in the Operation Research and Statistics Group at MIT Sloan. He is also co-Director of the MIT Operations Research Center
and the Faculty Director of the MIT-France program. He was Head of
Civil and Environmental Engineering at MIT from 2002 to 2009,
where he currently holds a joint appointment. From 1991 to 2002
he was a professor at the University of Texas in Austin, the last
five years as the Chair of the Department of Management Science
and Information Systems within the McCombs School of Business
School. He co-founded and was Director of UT Austin's Center for
Computational Finance. Before his appointment in Austin, he was a
faculty and a member of the Center for Applied Mathematics at the
Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussée in Paris. He received a
Diplôme d'Ingénieur from France (1981), and then came to MIT where
he received an SM in Transportation (1982) followed by a PhD in
Operations Research (1985).
Dr. Jaillet's research interests include online optimization and
learning; machine learning; and decision making under uncertainty.
His research is funded by US federal sources such as NSF,
ONR, AFOSR, and internationally by Singapore. Professor Jaillet's teaching
covers subjects such as machine learning; algorithms; mathematical programming; network
science and models; and probability. Dr. Jaillet's consulting
activities primarily focus on the development of optimization-based
analytic solutions in various industries, including defense,
financial, electronic marketplace, and information technology.
Dr. Jaillet was a fulbright scholar in 1990 and the recipient of
many research and teaching awards. He is a Fellow of the Institute for
Operations Research and Management Science Society (INFORMS), a member
of the Mathematical Optimization Society (MOS), and a member of the Society for
Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM). He is currently an
Associate Editor for INFORMS Journal on Optimization, Networks, and
Naval Research Logistics, and has been an Associate Editor for
Operations Research from 1994 until 2005 and for Transportation
Science from 2002 until 2017.
