Carnegie Mellon University
Tepper School of Business
PhD, Operations Research and Industrial Engineering, Cornell University

Sridhar Tayur is the Ford Distinguished Research Chair and University Professor of Operations Management at Carnegie Mellon University’s Tepper School of Business. He received his Ph.D. in Operations Research and Industrial Engineering from Cornell University and his undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) at Madras (where he is a Distinguished Alumnus Award winner). He is an INFORMS Fellow, a Distinguished Fellow of MSOM Society and has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE). He has been a visiting professor at Cornell, MIT and Stanford.


The research of the Quantum Technologies Group (QTG) at the Tepper School focuses on the creation of radically different types of algorithms to optimize complex large-scale industrial problems faster, with the ultimate desired outcome of commercialized algorithms that are easily accessible for practical application. We are also exploring unconventional hardware and studying practical issues in quantum communications
