Alexandre is an Assistant Professor of Operations Research and Public Policy at the Heinz College. He holds a minority appointment in Operations Research at the Tepper School of Business, and a courtesy appointment in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

His research applies stochastic models and optimization methods to promote more efficient, more reliable and more sustainable transportation systems. His primary focus lies in the problems of capacity planning, capacity allocation and capacity utilization in the air transportation industry. His work develops decision analytics to mitigate airport congestion through operating enhancements and the design of flight scheduling mechanisms. He is also interested in supporting the deployment of new forms of urban mobility, such as on-demand car-sharing and bike-sharing systems, electrified vehicles and connected vehicles.

In addition to his research, Alexandre worked with McKinsey & Co. and Booz Allen Hamilton to advise leading companies and governmental organizations in the fields of transportation, energy, logistics and organization. He received a PhD in Engineering Systems from MIT, a Master of Science in Technology and Policy from MIT, and a Master of Science in Applied Mathematics from the Ecole Polytechnique.
