Welcome to my page!

My name is Ali Fattahi and I am an Assistant Professor at the Carey Business School, Johns Hopkins University (starting Summer 2019).  My research interests are in the areas of parts and product portfolio management in mass customization, energy management, and healthcare.  I am also interested in the methodologies of large-scale optimization, stochastic dynamic programming, and multi-objective optimization.
