Hi, I am Collin Drent.

I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Industrial Engineering of Eindhoven University of Technology. My research centers around solving challenging data-driven decision problems that have practical relevance using operations research techniques. Specifically, I study the integration of learning and optimization to address operational challenges that decision makers face in practice. 

Prior to joining the School of Industrial Engineering, I obtained my PhD in Applied Mathematics from the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science of Eindhoven University of Technology.

I am always open to new collaborations. You can reach me at: c.drent at tue dot nl
