Communicating with Data

Workshop Organised by the Monash Business Analytics Team (WOMBAT)

Optimisation in Python and its application in carbon portfolio

In this 3-hour tutorial, you will learn the basics of mathematical optimization and how to solve an optimization problem in Python with tools that are easily available. We will then apply our learning to construct a carbon portfolio using optimization.

Dr Jessica Leung is a lecturer in Business Analytics at the Econometrics and Business Statistics Department at Monash University. Her research focuses on convex and combinatorial optimization in business applications. Jessica teaches undergraduate and postgraduate courses in business statistics, management science, optimization, applied linear algebra, and visual data analytics.

Participants are expected to have Anaconda and Python installed and are familiar with Jupyter Notebook or other Python editor.
