Short Profile

I am a slightly overweight, mature, male, retired academic. A former member of the OR group at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, The University of Melbourne. I am still affiliated with the Department as an Associate.

Now that I have retired, I have more time for my research work in the areas of dynamic programming, decision-making under severe uncertainty, composite concave programming, water resources planning, and interactive computing and modeling.

In case you plan to invite us for dinner/lunch, please note that my wife and I are vegetarians, but do not make a big fuss about it.

The formal details are as follows:

Full name: Moshe Sniedovich
Age: 70 + years young
Weight: A bit pregnant right now
Marital Status : Happily Married
E-mail: moshe{at}

Do not panic if your city is not included in this list. Have a look at my Sabbatical plans for details regarding how this can be fixed!

Some comments regarding my name are appropriate.

My first name - Moshe - is Moses in Hebrew (not French!). My last name should be pronounced something like Schnaidovitz. This is neither the place nor the time to explain the origin of this error. For all practical purposes you can call me Moshe.
