Meet our incoming PhD students: Autumn 2023
Management Science and Engineering is excited to welcome all of our incoming students as we begin the academic year!
As they arrived on campus, we had the pleasure of meeting some of our vibrant, diverse, and talented 2023 PhD cohort. Their research touches on MS&E's four research themes: AI & data science, computational social science, the future of organizing, and impacting policy decisions (read more about the themes in our Newsletter). The students bring expertise and an interdisciplinary spirit from a variety of fields, such as financial engineering, operations research, responsible engineering, computer science, decision analysis, and more.
