Hassan Ahmad Kamel Mostafa Kam Mortagy

Hassan obtained his MS in Management Science and Engineering from Columbia University. During his time at Columbia, he worked as a part-time analytics consultant for several companies. In his Master’s Thesis he worked on the Assortment Optimization problem from a risk perspective, where the objective was minimizing the risk that rises from the randomness of peoples' choices. He developed exact algorithms and optimization models to determine an optimal risk-averse assortment that does not encounter large revenue deviations.

Hassan is currently an Operations Research PhD student at the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) at Georgia Tech. His research lies at the intersection of combinatorial and convex optimization. In particular, he is exploiting combinatorial structure inherent in some optimization problems to eliminate bottlenecks and speed up convex optimization algorithms.
