Dr. Tien Mai
Polytechnique Montréal

Tien Mai is currently a postdoctoral researcher under the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Data Science for Real-Time Decision-Making at Polytechnique Montréal. He holds a Ph.D. (2016) and M.Sc (2013) in Computer Science from the Department of Computer Science and Operations Research, Université de Montréal. His research concerns developing demand models (discrete choice, route choice models) and optimization techniques with applications to transportation systems.

Dr. Tien is the winner of the 2016 TSL-INFORMS Dissertation Prize (the oldest and most prestigious honor for doctoral dissertations in the transportation science and logistics area).

Postdoctoral project (temporary) : Bayesian optimization of expensive cost functions with applications to large-scale demand modeling and machine learning.
