Program in the Foundations and Applications of Mathematical Optimization and Data Science

Welcome to the (temporary) home of Lehigh University’s new Program in the Foundations and Applications of Mathematical Optimization and Data Science (Lehigh MODS)!

The Lehigh MODS program has been established with the perspective that mathematical optimization is an essential tool throughout the revolutionary field of data science. The aim of the program is to capitalize on Lehigh’s world-class reputation in mathematical optimization research toward advances in these and related fields. The incoming postdoctoral fellow will be joining an interdisciplinary team of researchers working on a range of topics from optimization theory and algorithms to the application of modern data science and machine learning tools in areas from energy and healthcare systems to quantum chemistry.

The Lehigh MODS team is composed of faculty members in Lehigh’s departments of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE), Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (ChBE), Computer Science and Engineering (CSE), Economics (Econ), and Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE). See the full list here. All Lehigh MODS team members are also members of Lehigh’s Institute for Data, Intelligent Systems, and Computation (I-DISC), which provides administrative support for the program.
