Andrew Daw

Andrew Daw is a Ph.D. student in the School of Operations Research and Information Engineering at Cornell University where he is advised by Prof. Jamol Pender. Prior to joining Cornell in the Fall of 2015, Andrew graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial and Systems Engineering from the University of Florida.

Andrew's research is in probability and stochastic processes. His work examines how processes, systems, and decisions are shaped by perception and communication. This often involves the use of self-exciting point processes such as the Hawkes process to capture social influence among arriving entities. He is also interested in operations research at the level of individuals. This connects to his interests in teaching operations research, which are geared towarding achieving comprehension through both practical and personal connections.

Andrew is supported as a National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellow, received in 2017.
