Professor Diabat’s research interests focus on different applications of optimization and operations research. Encompassing applications such as logistics and supply chain management, healthcare management (in particular, blood collection and distribution), airline operations management, and production planning using mathematical programming. He is also interested in developing heuristics and solution algorithms for various types of difficult optimization problems
Saif Jabari's interests lie at the interface of data analysis and theoretical traffic-flow modeling, including the development of methods for understanding and quantifying uncertainty in transportation systems. Recently, he has focused on the development of real-time traffic analytics, such as traffic state estimation, network-wide real-time dynamic control, and incident detection, localization, and sensor placement problems for urban traffic networks.
Professor Menendez’s research interests include traffic flow theory and operations, sustainable transportation, and logistics. In particular, she is very active in the area of monitoring, modeling, and control of multimodal transportation systems, paying special attention to new technologies and data sources.
