Soroush Alamdari

I am finishing my PhD in Computer Science at Cornell University where my advisor is Prof. David Shmoys.

My research interest ranges from design of exact and approximate algorithms for combinatorial problems to developement of practical optimization systems for real world challenges. I have developed novel algorithms for Scheduling, Path Planning, Clustering, and Graph Drawing problems. Curretnly I am developing a system for scheduling final exams at Cornell University. Our current prototype is able to schedule the exams in a shorter period and with no conflicts, vastly outperforming the methods employed by the leading scheduling firms.
Here you can find my CV.
