Eitan Zemel is the Vice Dean for Strategic Initiatives and the W. Edwards Deming Professor of Quality and Productivity at New York University's Stern School of Business. He also teaches courses in operations management and operations strategy at NYU. Professor Zemel also teaches for the Master of Science in Business Analytics Program for Executives (MSBA), which is jointly hosted by NYU Stern and NYU Shanghai.
Zemel's research is focused on computations and algorithms. He developed the concepts used in the first practical algorithm for solving large knapsack problems and which are used in almost every efficient algorithm for this type of problem.
Other areas of Zemel's research include supply chain management, operations strategy, service operations, and incentive issues in operations management. His writing has appeared in numerous publications including The SIAM Journal on Applied Mathematics, Operations Research, Games and Economic Behavior, and Annals of Operations Research.
Zemel is also an associate editor of Manufacturing Review, Production and Operations Management, and Management Science, and the senior editor of Manufacturing and Service Operations.
