Ivan Mura
Associate Professor of Electric and Computer Engineering at Duke Kunshan University

Ivan Mura's interests focus on predictive modeling and system optimization. He has got a Computer Science degree in 1994, and a Ph.D. in Computer Science Engineering in 1999, both from the University of Pisa. Moreover, he completed a Master's degree in Information Technology Project Management from George Washington University and obtained a Black Belt six-sigma certification from Arizona State University in 2017  He is an expert in the theory and application of various operation research techniques, including stochastic modeling, simulation, and stochastic optimization.  He has been teaching courses in data analytics, stochastic modeling, simulation, programming, software engineering, and software project management. He has long-term experience in R&D project management, which he gained working in large and complex organizations such as Motorola and Microsoft Research. His current research interests are centered on the optimization of resource allocation in health systems, sustainability, and the central role of data for informed decision-making.
