Operations Research (OR) PhD student at MIT
Ironic the title of his column is "Inside View"
I mostly expected people not to know what OR stood for, and then hover over the link to find out more. I also don't think "Operations Research" is actually much more elucidating, especially given how overloaded the word "operations" is within EA, but it seems this may have been mistaken given this feedback so I have updated.
Thank you for creating the tag! I was also a CS major at Cornell who actually only took the intro OR class (which was great but my impression is that undergrad ORIE at Cornell is not taught efficiently otherwise).
As for your suggestions
Thanks for the feedback! I hope the revised title is an improvement.
I am no expert but by far the biggest org is the UN's World Food Program.
I don't see much reporting on them from Givewell but they get 4/4 from charity navigator.
