Hochbaum Earns Honorary Degree

Professor Dorit Hochbaum was awarded an honorary doctorate last fall by the University of Copenhagen. Her ground-breaking research focuses on using approximation algorithms to obtain solutions to problems that are practically and theoretically difficult to solve. Approximation algorithms solve problems quickly while guaranteeing that the solution will be close to the optimum.

Hochbaum is chair of the Haas School’s Operations and Information Technology Management Group and director of the UC Berkeley Supply Chain Management Initiative.
