Advanced Analytics, Intelligence & Processes for Disrupting Operations of Illicit Supply Networks

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Colorado State University (CSU) is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow in Advanced Analytics, Intelligence and Processes for Disrupting Operations of Illicit Supply Networks. The selected individual will work with Dr. Simske at CSU and interface with the team led by Drs. Kellar and Crawford at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. The incumbent will communicate and work with team members to discern technologies that can:1) automatically collect product pricing information and determine appropriate analytics for quantifying this to identify suspect sales 2) automatically cluster, classify and label licit and illicit operations 3) model the operational and spatial dynamics of illicit networks 4) result in algorithms for determining how illicit networks incent their users 5) generate advanced analytics and meta-analytics to discover central factors in illicit networks 6) provide means to anonymize sales and distribution data in other supply chain and service domains to encourage additional partners to join the program as it moves forward. The current position can leverage modeling tools, web services, data, stakeholder relationships, and institutional knowledge created through this complementary work.
