Dr Yoni Nazarathy

Senior Lecturer, Industry Liaison

Dr. Yoni Nazarathy's research is in the field of operations research, applied probability, statistics, queueing networks and control. He obtained his PhD from the University of Haifa, Israel in 2009. He then spent two years as a post-doctoral researcher in the Netherlands, at the European Institute for Statistics, Probability, Stochastic Operations Research and their Applications (EURANDOM) and at CWI (Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica) Amsterdam. He then spent an additional year as a Lecturer at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne where he remains an adjunct member of the Centre for Advanced Internet Architectures. As of 2012, he is a Lecturer in the School of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Queensland. As of 2013 he is on a DECRA fellowship.

Data Analysis of Melbourne's Urban Road Traffic

This project deals with analysis of huge volumes of data recorded on-line for urban road traffic networks, namely Melbourne's traffic system.  There are tens of interesting questions that need to be formulated and answered by means of real data analysis.

Effective Computing in Model Predictive Control for Urban Road Traffic Networks

This project deals with control of traffic light systems in large urban networks. It has recently been suggested to apply model predictive control techniques which involve large scale optimization repeatedly. The goal of this project is to analyze the associated optimization problems and find...

Ruin Theory and Correlated Random Walks

Ruin Theory is a branch of actuarial mathematics used by insurance companies for setting reserves.  The cleanest model is that of constant revenue subject to occasional losses (claims). An output of ruin theory in that case is the probability of defaulting.

In the basic model, inter...

Convolutions in the S-Plane with Applications

It is well known that the Laplace transform of a time-domain convolution of two functions is the product of the individual Laplace transforms.  A similar 'dual' property is that a convolution type contour integral of two Laplace transform yields the time domain product.  This...

Approximate Analysis and Control of Overflow Queuing Networks

Standard queueing network models such as the celebrated Jackson and BCMP networks exhibit mathematically elegant product form solutions of the stationary distribution. This means that the problem of evaluating the probabilistic behavior of the network at steady state is typically tractable. As...
