Hi! My name is Iain Dunning. I’m currently a PhD candidate in the Operations Research Center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I started here in September 2011. My research work is primarily on robust optimization, including tools for modeling problems and new algorithms for solving them (with Dimitris Bertsimas).
In the summer of 2013 I worked at Google San Francisco as a "quantitative analyst" intern on the search team. I proposed a new bandit-inspired heuristic for use in the crawler and then validated it by writing a lot of code to analyze the impacts using MapReduce (via C++) - big data, big fun!
If you'd like to know more about where I've worked and studied, checked out my profile on LinkedIn. Employment-related skill/keywords in brief: optimization, analytics, programming, data, machine learning, web, algorithms, simulations, ...
