Research/Teaching Interests
My research focuses on extending operations research methodologies to address practical problems in supply chain management.  Teaching includes courses in operations research, supply chain management, and capstone design projects.  Earlier at IBM, I was a Master Inventor and Senior Engineer and was honored by the INFORMS society with the Daniel H. Wagner Prize for Excellence in Operations Research Practice.

Courses Taught

EM/OM 331 Operations and Supply Chain Management
EM333 Operations Research
EM456 Interdisciplinary Process & Engineering Design
