DIAL (Decision Intelligence & Analytics Lab) is a multidisciplinary research group at Clemson University. We focus on exploring the mathematical foundations (optimization and statistics) that comprise prescriptive analytics.

Recent applications include devising efficient and fair algorithms for digital supply chains, designing reliable infrastructure for connected and automated vehicles, and enhancing AI-human systems.
