Nikolaos (Nikos) Trichakis is the Zenon Zannetos (1955) Career Development Professor and an Associate Professor of Operations Management at the MIT Sloan School of Management.

His research interests include optimization under uncertainty, data-driven optimization and analytics, with application in healthcare, supply chain management, and finance. Trichakis is also interested in the interplay of fairness and efficiency in resource allocation problems and operations, and the inherent tradeoffs that arise in balancing these objectives.

Before his doctoral studies, Trichakis worked in quantitative finance at SunGard APT in London. Prior to joining MIT, Trichakis was on the faculty of Harvard Business School.

He received his BS degree from Aristotle University (Greece), and MS degrees from Stanford University and Imperial College (UK), all in electrical and computer engineering. He holds a PhD in operations research from MIT.
