Amy Cohn is an Arthur F. Thurnau Professor, Professor of Industrial and Operations Engineering, and of Health Management and Policy, and Associate Director for the Center for Healthcare Engineering and Patient Safety. Her research focus is on developing models and algorithms for solving large-scale applied problems in healthcare, aviation, and other industries. She focuses predominantly on scheduling and resource allocation problems, with an emphasis on solutions that are not only provably optimal (or near-optimal) in theory, but that are implementable and sustainable in practice. This research is highly data-driven and based on deep multi-disciplinary collaborations.
