About

Bradley Sturt is an assistant professor of business analytics at the University of Illinois at Chicago, where he joined in fall 2020. His research focuses on optimization under uncertainty (robust, stochastic, dynamic) and machine learning, with applications in operations management, finance, and business analytics.

His research has been published in leading journals such as Operations Research and Management Science, and his research and teaching have been recognized in the INFORMS Junior Faculty Interest Group Paper Competition (Second Place, 2021), the INFORMS George Nicholson Student Paper Competition (Second Place, 2017), the MIT Operations Research Center Best Paper Award (First Place, 2019), and with the MIT Sloan Outstanding Teaching Assistant Award (selected once per year by MBA students, 2017).

Professor Sturt has worked and consulted for companies such as Google, Facebook, ABInbev, and Garmin. He received his Ph.D. in Operations Research from MIT in spring 2020, and completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in spring 2014.
