Saman Lagzi

Welcome to my page!

I am Saman Lagzi, an Assistant Professor of Operations at the UNC Kenan–Flagler Business School. Broadly speaking, my primary research focus is on integrating data analytics into the process of decision-making. In my research, I use data and design ways to use data, to better guide the decision-making process. My research interests are in the areas of Revenue Management and Pricing. Using mathematical modeling, linear, integer, and robust optimization, and approximation algorithms, in my research projects I help firms use their gathered data to improve their decision and achieve better operational outcomes.
