Biography

Shrutivandana Sharma has been with the Engineering Systems & Design Pillar since 2013. Prior to joining SUTD, she was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto, where she worked with Prof. Oded Berman and Prof. Hossein Abouee-Mehrizi. She received her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering: Systems from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 2009 under the supervision of Prof. Demosthenis Teneketzis, and her B.Tech. in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, in 2004. She also held research position at Yahoo! Labs, India from December 2009 to April 2012.

Her current research interests are in stochastic control, decentralized decision making, and incentive provision problems arising in logistics and supply chain management, and healthcare operations.
