Teaching and research interest

Gabriel Weintraub's research covers several subjects that lie in the intersection between operations/management science, and applied economics. He is particularly interested in developing mathematical and computational models for the economic analysis of problems in operations; as well as making contributions to industrial organization and computational economics. Before obtaining his Ph.D. at Stanford, Professor Weintraub was a full-time instructor at the Department of Industrial Engineering, University of Chile where he taught undergraduate operations research classes and consulted for the Chilean government. Professor Weintraub received the IFORS Prize for "Operations Research in Development 2002," given every three years to the best application of operations research/management science in a developing country. He teaches the core MBA class on operations management and a PhD seminar on microeconomic and game theoretical modeling.
