Hadi El-Amine is an Assistant Professor in the Systems Engineering and Operations Research Department at George Mason University.
His research interest lies in the application of Operations Research to problems related to healthcare and public policy. In particular, Hadi utilizes stochastic/robust optimization and probability theory to solve problems in which resources are scarce and uncertainty has high impact. Hadi has collaborated with the American Red Cross in research related to the safety of blood banks in the United States. The work involved developing blood screening strategies that minimize the risk of releasing infected units into the blood pool, taking into account budget considerations and uncertainty in donor characteristics. He is the recipient of the 2015 INFORMS Bonder Scholarship for Applied Operations Research in Health Services, was a finalist for the 2015 INFORMS Pierskalla Award and for the 2014 INFORMS Washington DC chapter Student Excellence Competition for his work on blood screening under limited resources.
Hadi received his PhD in Operations Research from Virginia Tech, and his Master's and Bachelor's degrees from the American University of Beirut, Lebanon.
