Ezra’s Round Table / Systems Seminar: Yaniv Mordecai (Amazon)

For two decades, Yaniv Mordecai has been practicing, studying, teaching and promoting complex systems engineering and operations research in the domains of A&D, HLS, Enterprise IT, command & control, avionics, cyber-security, airport operations, disaster resilience, and Robotics and Automation. He draws inspiration for his professional challenges from the scientific research in the field, and vice versa. He believes that complex systems require an integrated practical yet research-oriented approach.

Currently, Mordecai is a senior research scientist at Amazon, where he combines two of great professional thrusters: operations research and systems engineering. He builds holistic, scalable and robust solutions for planning, analysis, prediction and optimization of Amazon’s Last Mile operations on the road and under the roof, using state-of-the-art optimization, machine learning, Geospatial analysis, and information visualization methods. He works with a wide range of cloud-based services and applications to create and enhance on-line solutions that support operators, planners, analysts, designers, researchers, and directors.

In addition, Mordecai is a senior teaching fellow, lecturer and research mentor in the areas of model-based systems engineering and simulation, cyber-physical systems and risk analysis at Tel-Aviv University’ Systems Engineering Research Initiative.

Mordecai holds a post-doc in systems engineering and a teaching certificate from MIT (2021), Ph.D. (2016) in information systems engineering from Technion, and M.Sc. (2010, cum laude) and B.Sc. (2002) in industrial engineering from Tel-Aviv University, Israel. His research interests include model-based systems engineering, cybernetics and cyber-physical systems, risk analysis, decision analysis, interoperable systems, and operations research.

A senior member of the IEEE, Mordecai is founder of the IEEE Systems Council Israel Chapter.
He is also a member of the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) and observer on the board of the Israeli Society for Systems Engineering – INCOSE Israel Chapter.
