About me

Senior Data Scientist, Geisinger Health Systems

Biplab Bhattacharya

I am currently working as a senior data scientist at the Steele Institute for Healthcare Innovation at Geisinger Health Systems. I bring my background in operations research and data science into developing implementable real world  solutions in healthcare which improve patient access, care delivery and efficiency. 

My doctoral research interests involved the application of operations  research (OR) and systems engineering techniques to solve problems encountered by large scale systems. In particular, my research has involved optimization of scheduling, allocation and routing models. I have worked toward using machine learning modeling outputs into classical operations research models. I have a background in mechanical engineering and a masters in industrial and systems engineering engineering.
