Isaac Grosof's portrait

I have accepted a faculty position at Northwestern University, in the Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences department. I will start there in Fall 2024. I will be doing a postdoc in the intervening year, at Georgia Tech from August 1 ‘23 to February 1 ‘24, and at UIUC from February 1 ‘24 to August 1 ‘24.

I work on stochastic scheduling and resource allocation, with a focus on optimal policies.

I have received the INFORMS 2022 George Nicholson Award, the award for the best student paper in the field of operations research, the ACM SIGMETRICS 2021 Best Paper Award, the ACM SIGMETRICS 2019 Best Student Paper Award, and the IFIP Performance 2018 Best Student Paper Award. I am a 2023 Siebel Scholar, a fellowship recognizing academic excellence and leadership.
