Quantitative Methods for Logistics

Stephan Meisel joined the department as an assistant professor (Juniorprofessor) in the summer of 2013. He is interested in optimization problems arising in the broad fields of logistics, transportation and business networks. Both his research and his teaching primarily address models and methods required to solve these problems.

Most frequently he studies dynamic decision problems under uncertainty. Due to the real-time capabilities of modern information systems, this type of problem appears within a wide range of operational business processes. The unifying question behind all these problems is how to efficiently use information for making sound operational decisions over time.

Before joining the department Stephan Meisel was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Department of Operations Research and Financial Engineering at Princeton University.
