About Me

Nasser Barjesteh

Hello! My name is Nasser Barjesteh. I'm an Assistant Professor of Operations Management and Statistics at the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto. My research focuses on the analysis of complex stochastic systems with applications in service opertations, revenue management, and manufacturing. I study these systems from both the analytical and empirical perspectives. From a methodological perspective, I am interested in structural estimation, stochastic control, and stochastic modeling.
