About

Beryl's research interests lie in the intersection of operations management, operations research and marketing. She applies techniques from statistics, machine learning and optimization to develop data-driven algorithms for decision making. Some of her works include dynamic pricing, inventory control and supply chain management, assortment planning, energy and capacity expansion.
