Vikram Kilambi

Vikram is a PhD candidate in Northwestern's Department of Industrial Engineering and Management Science. He is working with his advisor, Sanjay Mehrotra, on ways to make access to kidney and liver transplantation in the United States more equitable and efficient. The interdisciplinary nature of the problem and the complexity of the US transplantation system force us to implement diverse techniques including stochastic, nonlinear mixed-integer optimization, discrete-event simulation, Markov modeling, decision analysis, and biostatistics.  Their work has been acknowledged by national transplant leadership and federal regulatory agencies.
