  • Fast, Shannon M. (Shannon Marie) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Epidemic trajectories and associated social responses vary widely between populations, with severe reactions sometimes observed. When confronted with fatal or novel pathogens, people exhibit a variety of behaviors from ...
  • Soldner, Mallory Jo (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    This research seeks to address potential "passenger-centric" modifications to the way that ground holding delays are allocated in Ground Delay Programs. The allocation of landing slots to arriving flights during time periods ...
  • Shenk, Kimberly N (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Myocardial infarction is a derivative of heart disease that is a growing concern in the United States today. With heart disease becoming increasingly predominant, it is important to not only take steps toward preventing ...
  • Diwan, Sarvee (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    This thesis evaluates the performance of Dynamic Programming (DP) models as applied to airline Revenue Management (RM) compared to traditional Revenue Management models like EMSRb as DP models offer a theoretically attractive ...
  • Morse, Steven T (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    We present work in identifying, modeling, and predicting the structure of influence in a communication network. We focus on cellular phone data, which provides a near-global population sample (in contrast to the relatively ...
  • Seidel, Scott B (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Combat outposts (COPs) are small, well-protected bases from which soldiers reside and conduct operations from. Used extensively during the "Surge" in Iraq, COPs are usually established in populated areas and are prevalent ...
  • McAllister, Daniel B. (Daniel Brandford) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    We consider the problem of assigning a scarce number of interceptors to a wave of incoming atmospheric re-entry vehicles (RV). In this single wave, there is time to assign interceptors to a wave of incoming RVs, gain ...
  • Sasanuma, Katsunobu (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Drivers in urban neighborhoods who cruise streets, seeking inexpensive on-street parking create a significant fraction of measured traffic congestion. The solution to this problem is to reduce the total traffic volume ...
  • Andersson, Kari (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    This thesis explores the benefits of increasing communication and collaboration between airlines and air traffic controllers during the arrival process at hub airports. In particular, this study estimates operational ...
  • Sheth, Mallory (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Predicting outcomes for critically ill patients is a topic of considerable interest. The most widely used models utilize data from early in a patient's stay to predict risk of death. While research has shown that use of ...
  • Mundell, Lee Carter (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    The rapid growth of the availability of wearable biosensors has created the opportunity for using physiological signals to measure worker performance. An important question is how to use such signals to not just measure, ...
  • Rizzo, Ludovica (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    In the era of Big Data, online retailers have access to a large amount of data about their customers. This data can include demographic information, shopping carts, transactions and browsing history. In the last decade, ...
  • Crimmel, Brian A (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    The U.S. military considers Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) a critical component of the future for two primary reasons - they are effective force multipliers and a significant risk-reducing agent. As the military's ...
  • Mao, Ye, 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    Distribution and pricing strategies play a central role in the field of supply chain management. Heuristic approaches to the vehicle routing problem (VRP) are usually used to design optimal delivery routes to serve ...
  • Idris, Husni Rifat (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
    The Departure Planner (DP) is a concept for a decision-aiding tool that is aimed at improving the performance of departure operations at major congested airports. In order to support the development of DP tools and other ...
  • Limpaitoon, Tanachai (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    In this thesis we consider a multi-period truckload pick-up and delivery problem dealing with real-time requests over a finite time horizon. We introduce the notion of postponement of requests, whereby the company can ...
  • Scully, Timothy (Timothy Edward) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    End-stage liver disease is one of the leading causes of death in the United States, and the only viable treatment is liver transplantation. Since the quality of a donor liver decreases with transportation time, United ...
  • Mariadassou, Shwetha Paramananda (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    We build on existing operations and marketing research focusing on the effect of information transparency on consumers by studying how transparency into the levels and changes of relative sustainability performance affects ...
  • Tziligakis, Constantine Nikolaos (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
  • Shioda, Romy, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    We develop two classes of optimization models in order to maximize revenue in a restaurant, while controlling average waiting time as well as perceived fairness, that may violate the first-come-first-serve (FCFS) rule. In ...
