Emily Craparo, Assistant ProfessorDr. Craparo

Emily Craparo came to the Naval Postgraduate School Department of Operations Research as a National Research Council Postdoctoral Associate in 2009, and she joined the faculty in 2010. Dr. Craparo received her S.B., S.M., and Ph.D. from the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Her graduate research focused on decision and control algorithms for cooperative autonomous systems operating in communication-constrained environments, as well as wireless network optimization. Her current areas of interest are decision-making under uncertainty and the design of efficient algorithms.
