Ana's research focuses on fundamental principles of operation, design and control of systems in which uncertainty is an inherent property and an important assumption in the analysis and design. She concentrates on approaches that lead to explicit and insightful results, which highlight business tradeoffs and provide general design guidelines.
Ana has conducted research in the following areas: Web caching, stochastic service networks, revenue management and pricing in capacitated systems with reusable resources, job scheduling algorithms in large computer centers and online advertising.
As a researcher in Google, Ana got a rare opportunity to be exposed to a variety of problems that emerge in the world of business and technology. It is very inspiring to think of solutions that could improve the world of technology and, consequently, our lives! More can be found in her CV.
Ana received her B.S. in Electrical Engineering from University of Belgrade in 1999. She received her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Columbia University, New York, in 2004. Her thesis, for which she was advised by Prof. Predrag Jelenkovic, was titled 'Nearly Optimal Cache Replacement Policies for Efficient Web Access'. In January 2005, Ana became a Research Staff Member in Stochastic Analysis group, Mathematical Sciences Department, IBM Research. After spending three years at IBM Research, Ana joined exciting and progressive Google as a Research Scientist.
