Materially every aspect of our business relates to graph theory, convex/combinatorial optimization or thermo-fluid dynamics, giving experience in a broad spectrum of academic disciplines. In addition, as a Data Scientist with Lineage, you will gain industrial experience, seeing first-hand how our business operates and makes decisions. 


PROBLEMS
Your work will influence everything from the design of our facilities to how we operate them to where we ship product (nationally and internationally). The following is a sampling of problems we encounter:
(1) Routing freight over the minimum cost (or minimum time) path (using graph theory)
(2) Optimally packing items in a warehouse or truck (using combinatorial optimization and integer programming)
(3) Analyzing and predicting the failure modes of industrial refrigeration systems (using survival analysis, harmonic analysis and an array of industrial sensors)
(4) Solving scheduling problems with many moving pieces (using linear programming)
(5) Simulating a warehouse to understand how to best utilize robotics (using agent-based models and Monte-Carlo simulation)
(6) Visualizing high-dimensional data sets (using D3.js, R, Python, MATLAB, etc)
