Curriculum Vitae

Personal Statement:
Kayse's current research is in the area of large scale optimization and decomposition methods that will enable mathematical models to efficiently incorporate rich data generated by big data. In particular, her primary research focuses on leveraging daily demand data to develop new methods of integrating various operations strategies into facility location models that mitigate the traditional hard capacity constraints. She shows that her modeling framework enhances system performance and can provide significant cost savings as compared to traditional models. Kayse also has ongoing collaborative research projects in the areas of healthcare and diverse group formation, and interests in the application of operation research methods to humanitarian logistics and anti-human trafficking efforts.

Additionally, Kayse is a recipient of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program Award and the Joel & Lorraine Brown Graduate Student Instructor of the Year Award. She serves as President of the University of Michigan INFORMS Student Chapter, as a member of the Graduate Student Advisory Committee, and as a Graduate Student Coordinator.
