Jacob M Aguirre

Summer Research Fellow

I am an Operations Research PhD student at the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) at Georgia Institute of Technology, advised by Professors Turgay Ayer and Gian-Gabriel Garcia. My research interests lie broadly in the interface of optimization theory and decision making, with focus on causal inference, convex optimization, reinforcement learning, stochastic and robust optimization, and high-dimensional statistics.

Prior to beginning my PhD, I graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology with focuses in Economics and Mathematics. I also pursued MS degrees in Statistics and Economics while as undergrad through the BS/MS program. I am a recipient of the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, ISyE Stewart Fellowship, and GEM PhD Fellowship.

In Summer 2023, I will be working with the Data Analysis and Machine Learning Group under Dr. Rich Archibald.
