Welcome to my blog that is intended to keep interested parties up to date on my latest research and teaching endeavors. Specifically, I view this blog as a way to engage the online community by:
- Sharing — As we live in a society where the majority of us spend a great proportion of our days “staring at glowing rectangles” – I thought a digital presence to share my current research findings, projects, and insights would be valuable to the academic and industry community.
- Engaging — If anything you see on my blog is of interest to you, please contact me through email. I am constantly looking for interesting research projects that are motivated by industry problems, as well as research collaborators throughout the world.
- Promoting — Industrial engineering is a profession I am very lucky to have discovered and is a profession I find extremely valuable, practical, and rewarding. Unfortunately, it is also a profession that tends to have a marketing problem. When I give presentations to prospective students, I constantly get comments such as “I had no idea an industrial engineer did that.” If this blog, in some small way, can get the word out about industrial engineering, there is an opportunity to match people with a career they find equally rewarding.
