WN@tL: “Advanced Analytics for Emergency Response, Bracketology, and Beyond!”

Speaker

Laura Albert, assistant dean for graduate affairs and an associate professor of industrial and systems engineering, UW–Madison College of Engineering

About the talk

Laura Albert will talk about how engineers use math models and analytics to solve problems and design systems. She will provide an overview of operations research and advanced analytics, and she will discuss their wide-ranging applications — focusing on examples from her research that address problems in emergency response and bracketology.

Parking Information

Parking is available in Lot 20, located at 1390 University Avenue. Lot 20 is a three-level parking structure on the right side of University Avenue, just before Henry Mall. Lot 20 is attached to the Genetics/Biotechnology Center.

Parking in Lot 20 is one of the most convenient parking experiences on campus. Park on the top level, and you can enter the building without going up any steps. Convenient, close and step-free parking are three big reasons we hold WN@tL at the Genetics/Biotechnology Center.
