Agni Orfanoudaki works at the intersection of optimization and machine learning, with applications to healthcare and insurance. Her research explores practical solutions to address real-world industry needs drawn from conversations and requests from clinicians and health care organizations, solved in new, creative ways that leverage data-driven analytics. She has collaborated with multiple institutions, including a major medical society, an international reinsurance company, and more than seven hospitals from the US and Europe. As an HDSI fellow, Agni will focus on the development of novel algorithms for sequential decision-making employing reinforcement learning and causal inference techniques.

She received a Ph.D. in Operations Research from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), under the supervision of Prof. Dimitris Bertsimas. She is going to join Oxford University in September 2021 as an Associate Professor of Operations Management at the Saïd Business School and as a Fellow at Exeter College.
