Biography

I am Professor Emeritus of Management Science, retired from the Eli Broad College of Business at Michigan State University. My primary research interest is in the application of integer programming models and algorithms. Some of my previous publications have appeared in IIE Transactions, Operations Research, Decision Sciences and European Journal of Operational Research. All those journals seemed to have survived the experience.

In addition to research interests, I am active in the INFORMS Pro Bono Analytics project.

Blog

My blog, OR in an OB World, is published via Blogger. The content is a mix of tips and tricks for operations research (primarily discrete optimization), coding (Java, CPLEX, R) and Linux (especially Linux Mint), with the occasional rant mixed in. Some of the posts are repeated in the curated collection Spartan Ideas.
