Profile Summary

Professor Linderoth's research focuses on modeling and solving real-world, large-scale optimization problems. Specific research areas within optimization include integer programming, used for modeling yes/no decisions, and stochastic programming, useful for decision making under uncertainty.His research places a particular emphasis on developing high-performance, distributed optimization algorithms and software.
