Golshan  Madraki Headshot


Dr. Golshan Madraki is currently an Associate Professor of David. D. Reh School of Business and the Associate Director of the Honors Program at Clarkson University. She got her Ph.D. degree in Industrial and System Engineering from Ohio University, in 2017. She received her B.S. and M.S. degree in Industrial Management in 2010 and 2013 respectively from Allameh Tabatabai University, Tehran, Iran. Her areas of expertise include Algorithm, Graph Theory, Supply Chain Networks, Operations Research, and Mathematical Modeling. Dr. Madraki has published several research papers in prestigious journals and conference proceedings (e.g., Journal of Computers & Operations Research, International Journal of Production Research, Web Conference, etc.) in the fields of data-analytics, manufacturing systems, and Supply chain networks; and have several more papers in-progress. Her undergraduate and graduate students collaborated in some of these publications. Dr. Madraki has taught different courses including Engineering Economics, Project management, System Engineering and management, and Honors Capstone Courses at Ohio University and Clarkson University.
