Overview

Jeremy Eckhause is an operations researcher at the RAND Corporation and associate director for the Strategy, Policy, and Operations Program (SPOP) within the Homeland Security Operational Analysis Center (HSOAC). He has 20 years’ experience developing mathematical optimization and simulation models for transportation, government, and defense agencies and services.  He supports and leads projects within HSOAC, as well as within the Arroyo Center, Project AIR FORCE, the National Defense Research Institute (NDRI), and RAND Social and Economic Well-Being. His focus areas include resource allocation, transportation modeling (with special emphasis on aviation and air traffic management), R&D portfolio analysis and optimization, logistics, and public-sector investment under technological uncertainty.   

Prior to joining RAND, he was a member of the research staff at the Logistics Management Institute (LMI), where he was a project leader for multi-year projects supporting various U.S. government agencies. He has produced original research that has been published in peer-reviewed journals, such as Energy Policy, IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management, and Military Operations Research, and has presented at numerous conferences. He has been an invited lecturer at the IFP Graduate School in France and the German Institute of Economic Research (DIW) in Berlin.
