IBM Research

As part of my work at IBM Research, we worked with a large steel company in the Asia-Pacific on optimized solutions to several key components of their steel making process. The project included: (1) Inventory Application (2) Steel Slab Design and (3) Cast Design.

My work has been in:

(a) understanding the key process operation issues

(b) modeling these large scale optimization problems 

(c) designing efficient algorithms to solve them to optimality as well as designing heuristics which guarantee a solution within a specified factor from the optimal solution.

Our work on inventory matching algorithms has found applications in electronic commerce.
