The night before Nikita Bier launched his app TBH, he was on the phone with his lawyer, asking how to liquidate a business. About three months later, more than 5 million people had downloaded his app and Facebook was acquiring it.
IEOR PhD student Salar Fattahi has been chosen as one of five finalists for the prestigious American Control Conference Best Student Paper Award for his paper titled "Closed-Form Solution and Sparsity Path for Inverse Covariance Estimation Problem." The research was developed under the supervision of Dr. Somayeh Sojoudi, assistant professor in residence in the Departments of Electrical Engineering & Computer Sciences and Mechanical Engineering at UC Berkeley.
Professor Rhonda Righter, along with her collaborators Ivo Adan (Eindhoven University of Technology) and Gideon Weiss (The University of Haifa), have been award the Best Paper Award at the 11th EAI | VALUETOOLS International Conference on Performance Evaluation Methodologies and Tools. The title of the paper was "FCFS Parallel Service Systems and Matching Models." The conference took place from December 5-7 in Venice, Italy.
IEOR is proud to welcome Cédric Josz to the Berkeley community. Cédric is currently pursuing a postdoc in EECS and IEOR under the supervision of Somayeh Sojoudi and Javad Lavaei where he works on optimization, control and its applications.
