Congratulations to VACLab member Rashnil Chaturvedi who is part of the UNC team that was recently named a Finalist for the 2017 INFORMS O.R. & Analytics Student Team Competition.
To quote the competition website, “Eight student teams from around the world have been selected as finalists in the inaugural INFORMS O.R. and Analytics Student Team Competition. INFORMS, the leading international association for professionals in operations research and analytics, introduced this new competition to highlight young talent and provide O.R. and analytics students the opportunity to solve the kinds of real-world workplace challenges they will face during their careers.”
Rashnil will join his teammates in Las Vegas in early April to present his team’s solution to the challenge to a team of judges. The winning team will be announced at INFORMS, but regardless of the final result, being named a finalist is a great honor. Congratulations, Rashnil!
