Dr Xuan Vinh Doan is a Reader at Warwick Business School, the University of Warwick. Before joining Warwick Business School, he was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Combinatorics and Optimization at University of Waterloo (Canada) from November 2009 to September 2011. He completed his PhD from the Operations Research Center at MIT (USA), his master's study from the MIT-Singapore Aliance at NUS (Singapore), and his undergraduate study from RMIT (Australia).
His research interests are optimisation under uncertainty, which supports decision making given imperfect information or incomplete data, and optimisation-based machine learning, which concerns the development of optimisation techniques to solve data-mining problems, especially low-rank and sparse optimisation problems. He is also interested in prescriptive analytics which focuses on the interplay between data-driven optimisation and machine learning.
