Omid Nohadani to join IEMS Faculty

Prof. Nohadani, who is currently an assistant professor of IE at Purdue (, invents and applies tools from robust optimization to radiotherapy planning, robust statistics, design of ultrafast optics, and nanophotonics. His work is particularly relevant in radiotherapy where uncertainty can arise about the shape of the tumor, the amount of exposure received, and the tumor location. In his optimization research, Nohadani focuses on problems where the objective function and constraints are outputs of a numerical simulation.
