Developing Security Solutions
Scholars from the Yale School of Management and the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology are using the tools of operations research to approach problems in the area of counterterrorism and homeland security. The three-year partnership is supported by a gift from Daniel Rose, chairman of Rose Associates, Inc. and a 1951 graduate of Yale College.

Beach Professor of Management Sciences, Professor of Public Health, and Professor of Engineering at Yale.Listen to Golany and Kaplan describe their scholarly approach to counterterrorism and national security research.
