IT Project Management

My most recent project was for the U.S. Coast Guard, where I developed a large scale mathematical optimization model to efficiently allocate a fleet of over 1,000 boats to approximately 200 stations across the continental U.S., Hawaii and Alaska. The model completely eliminated boat shortages and reduced boat excesses by 97%. The required fleet size was also reduced by 23%.As an academic professor, I also perform optimization research and I keep up with the leading optimization techniques. Therefore, I can bring the most recent advances to the table.As an example of application domains, I can perform efficient allocation of resources, revenue management, supply chain management, procurement management, project management. I specialize in situations where complexity precludes manual decision making.

    I greatly enjoyed working with Michael on this effort. I trust his work and based on his findings and recommendations, I hired him a couple of weeks later for another project. Highly recommended!

    Michael (mikew78) has my highest recommendation. This project presented constant challenges and Michael was always readily available with creative and timely solutions, sage advice, and a positive attitude. I hope to have the opportunity to work with him again on a future project.
