Focus and Current Research

Dr. Orgut’s research focuses on problems that involve multiple decision-makers with conflicting objectives and various sources of uncertainty in the context of humanitarian operations management and medical decision making She is specifically interested in developing statistical models that learn from data and feed input to stochastic models to provide solutions that can be easily-implementable and interpretable by the decision-makers. Methods include Mathematical Modeling, Stochastic Optimization, Robust Optimization, Data Analytics, and Applied Statistics.
