Our mission is to work collaboratively to change the world. Here are just a few ways members of our team are doing that:




The Working Environment

“Working at Applied Optimization has helped me get experience working on lots of different projects. Everything I’ve learned, I write down and remember. You just keep adding things to your toolbox that will help you solve problems for the rest of your career.”
-Derek Boone

“I am surprised by the depth and breadth of technology in the projects we have at AO since we are such a small company. The technology we propose and work on here is state of the art. AO has helped me fulfill my dreams. It’s a great place to work.”

-Diane Beamer, Optics Engineer

“Applied Optimization is a family type of environment where we can roll up our sleeves and get into the difficult problems that are facing the country in terms of technology both in space and material sciences. We work on problems that other people have not been able to solve in a straightforward way.”
-Dr. Tamara Payne

“Working at AO has helped me see deeper ways of looking at and thinking about data. Things do not always work here, and you have to figure out why. You must be creative. I enjoy that.”

-Jeff Hollon, Applied Mathematician

Pursuit of Learning

“When I hired on at AO, I wanted to pursue my masters. Dr. Chaudhary told me that school comes first, and he would work with me around my school schedule. He has lived up to that promise.”
-University of Dayton grad

“Until joining AO, I thought I would only be able to pursue my love for space as an avocation. Now I not only can combine my computer engineering background with space, but I am going to secure my master’s degree in aerospace engineering.”
-Wright State University grad
