I will be applying these tools at Uber after I graduate. Uber has a ton of optimization problems including ride demand prediction, matching riders together for UberPool and setting prices. One example of what I might work on at Uber would be using mathematical optimization to more effectively maximize driver availability while minimizing rider wait time during peak demand.
