Konstantina Mellou

Senior Researcher


I am a Senior Researcher in the Cloud Operations Research (CORE) group in MSR Redmond.

In 2019 I received my Ph.D. in Operations Research from MIT under the supervision of Patrick Jaillet. Before that, I obtained my degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens in Greece.

My research interests are in the area of optimization and data-driven decision making with applications in transportation and logistics. My current focus is on designing large-scale optimization solutions for cloud systems and applications. Current projects include cloud supply chain optimization and online algorithms for VM allocation.
