Biography

Giulia Pedrielli is currently an assistant professor for the School of Computing Informatics System Design Systems Engineering in Arizona State University. She was previously a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Industrial & Systems Engineering at National University of Singapore and Department of Mechanical Engineering of Politecnico di Milano. She was also a research fellow for the Institute of Industrial Technologies and Automation within the National Research Council, Italy, (ITIA-CNR). She was a visiting PhD student at University of California Berkeley (USA), Department of Industrial Engineering & Operations Research (IEOR) during the period August 2011–June 2012 collaborating with Professor Lee W. Schruben.

She develops her research activity in the area of stochastics and simulation with a particular interest in simulation based optimization. She has dealt with applications in several domains: manufacturing including automotive and de-manufacturing, power systems, supply chains, automation and warehousing, and health care. She is increasingly involved in real time control under uncertainty in the domain of cyber-physical systems including robotics.
