I am a Professor in the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech.

My research interest centers on stochastic simulation, data-based decision-making, optimization via simulation, spatiotemporal monitoring, and applications of simulation and statistical methods to environmental management and manufacturing. I received INFORMS Simulation Society Outstanding Simulation Publication Award in 2006, the NSF Career Award in 2007, and the Harold W. Kuhn Award in 2013. I also received Class of 1934 Course Survey Teaching Effectiveness Award in 2012.
