Prof. Arkadi Nemirovski

Bio

Arkadi Nemirovski earned the Ph.D. in Mathematics (1974) from Moscow State University and the Doctor of Sciences in Mathematics (1990) from the Institute of Cybernetics of the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences, Kiev. He currently holds a Chair at the School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. Prof Nemirovski has made fundamental contributions in continuous optimization in the last thirty years that have significantly shaped the field.


In recognition of his contributions to convex optimization, Nemirovski was awarded the 1982 Fulkerson Prize from the Mathematical Programming Society and the American Mathematical Society (joint with Leonid Khachiyan and David Yudin), the 1991 Dantzig Prize from the Mathematical Programming Society and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (joint with Martin Grotschel). In recognition of his seminal and profound contributions to continuous optimization, Nemirovski was awarded the 2003 John von Neumann Theory Prize by the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (along with Michael J Todd). He is the only individual to have won all three of these prestigious prizes (Fulkerson, Dantzig, and von Neumann).


He continues to make significant contributions in almost all aspects of continuous optimization: complexity, numerical methods, stochastic optimization, and non-parametric statistics.
