I joined the faculty of the Department of Industrial Engineering at the University of Arkansas in January 2010.  Prior to joining the University of Arkansas, I received a Ph.D. in Industrial and Systems Engineering from Georgia Tech.  I earned Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Industrial Engineering from the University of Arkansas and Virginia Tech, respectively.

My primary areas of teaching and research are in Healthcare Systems Engineering and Transportation Logistics.  I enjoy applying operations research tools and techniques to problems arising in the healthcare and logistics industries, and I have the opportunity to teach students how to do the same in my courses.
