Sauleh Siddiqui is an Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering and Applied Mathematics & Statistics at the Whiting School of Engineering, Co-Director of the Center for Systems Science & Engineering, and Research Fellow at DIW Berlin. He is also a member of the Malone Center for Engineering in Healthcare and the Center for Systems Engineering in Healthcare. He has received the Young Researcher Prize from the Energy Natural Resources and the Environment section of INFORMS, where he serves as Chair of the Energy Cluster. He is also Vice Chair for Linear and Conic Optimization for the INFORMS optimization society and is an Associate Editor for the journal Optimization and Engineering

His research is on formulating and solving optimization and game theory models representing human-system interaction when making decisions in large-scale energy and health systems. These include applications to energy infrastructure, healthcare planning, and urban transportation. Modeling multiplayer decisions under uncertainty using optimization introduces nonlinearities and discontinuities in the problem structure that need to be resolved for theoretical and computational foundations. His research centers on developing the required theory and computational tools for solving these new class of optimization problems.

He has received research funding from NSF, NIH, MIT Collaborative Initiatives, the World Bank, Johns Hopkins Health System, and the Norwegian Research Council. In addition, he has collaborated on projects with the International Council on Clean Transportation, Institute of Medicine, National Academy of Engineering, Resources for the Future, the Joint Global Change Research Institute, and Bikemore. These projects have included modeling energy and climate markets, patient flow and staffing in hospitals, and global vaccination strategies.

He received an A.B. in Mathematics and Public Policy from Franklin & Marshall College and a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics & Statistics, and Scientific Computation from the University of Maryland, College Park. Prior to joining Hopkins, he was an Associate in the Environmental Markets team at ICF International and a consultant with the Development Research Group at the World Bank.
