Professor Chaithanya Bandi joined the department of Managerial Economics and Decision Sciences at the Kellogg School of Management in 2013. He received a Ph.D in Operations Research from MIT in 2013, and a Bachelors of Technology in Computer Science and Engineering from IIT Madras in 2008. He has worked in technology and Financial services companies such as Yahoo, Bell Labs, Lehman Brothers, and Investment Technology Group.
Chaithanya is broadly interested in the problems of decision making under uncertainty, incomplete information and risk with applications to operations management. In particular, I have focussed on developing Robust Optimization based models to formulate key problems in applications such as queueing control, risk optimization, mechanism design, and online algorithms; with applications ranging from e-commerce, healthcare, crowdsourcing, data-centers, and cloud-computing.
