Event details

Discrete choice models play an important role in numerous applications such as route choice modelling in traffic research, product assortment and pricing in revenue management, and policy planning in health care, just to name a few. In this talk, we will discuss semiparametric choice models in which the correlations between different products can be modelled without specifying the full distribution of product utilities. We observe that semiparametric models provide good alternatives in many ways to the traditional approach that use random utility theory.

Dr Selin Damla Ahipasaoglu, joined the University of Southampton as an Associate Professor in Operational Research within Mathematical Sciences in July 2020. Prior to that, she was a faculty member in National University of Singapore and Singapore University of Technology and Design. She received her PhD from Cornell University in 2009. While having an ongoing interest in convex optimization and statistical learning; recently, she has focused mostly on robust optimization and its applications in discrete choice modelling, portfolio optimization and transportation.
