Maxime C. Cohen
Associate Professor
McGill University



I am an Associate Professor of Retail Management and Operations Management and a Bensadoun Faculty Scholar at McGill University. Before joining McGill, I was an Assistant Professor of Technology, Operations, and Statistics at NYU Stern and a Research Scientist at Google AI. I previously worked as a high-frequency trader and co-founded a real estate investment company.

My core expertise lies at the intersection of data science and operations management. I have worked on retail, ride-sharing, airline, sustainability, cloud computing, online advertising, peer-to-peer lending, and social networks. I have collaborated with different companies including Google, Oracle Retail, IBM Research, Via (ride-sharing), Spotify, Cargo, Staples as well as several startups. In each project, I have worked closely with the company to develop solutions using tools such as optimization, machine learning, stochastic modeling, econometrics, game theory, and field experiments.
