Angie King
 

Angie King is committed to applying advanced quantitative techniques to challenges in operations and analytics. Her professional and academic work has included consulting and collaboration with industrial partners in sectors as diverse as retail, government, healthcare, and transportation.

In all of her projects, Angie has assessed the business situation and applied the appropriate tool for the job. When consulting for a global electronics client, she developed stochastic inventory models and conducted data analysis to predict the financial impact of operational changes both at the supply chain network level and individual SKU level. Angie brought her knowledge of forecasting to a national retail chain’s targeted marketing campaigns as well as to the public sector by working to enhance the Boston Police Department's crime forecasts. And she collaborated with a large regional healthcare network to improve their discount pricing contract design. Angie also developed an optimization-based method to dynamically rebalance a public bicycle sharing system, accounting for stochasticity in demand.

Angie maintains a strong interest in education and is a co-creator of the massively open online course "The Analytics Edge" on MITx, which has tens of thousands of students enrolled. She holds a Ph.D. in Operations Research from MIT and a B.Sc. in Mathematics from McGill University.
