I will explain what are the skills that make a good Optimization Consultant – in particular, I will emphasize how the role requires one to be comfortable wearing many hats: from mathematician to full-stack coder, from subject-matter expert to salesperson. Using my career as a background, I will share the lessons I learned from transitioning from academia to consultancy. Finally, I will present some industry problems my team at FICO and I have been working on.”
