Oran Kitterthreeapronchai, Ph.D. student in the Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, received the "Best Student Paper" award at the 1st Annual International Transportation and Logistics (TRANSLOG) Conference held at McMaster University in Canada earlier this month.

Kitterthreeapronchai, whose research interests are in the areas of large-scale logistics systems, computational algorithms, and applied optimization, received the award and a cash prize for his paper "Geometric Relationships of a Single-Hub Crossdocking Network." Since obtaining his MSIE from the Stewart School in December 2002, he has worked with faculty advisor John Bartholdi III, Manhattan Associates Chair of Supply Chain Management, on this and other transportation-related problems. He defended his thesis in April and will now take up a research engineer position at the National University of Singapore.

Kitterthreeapronchai studied industrial engineering at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, Thailand, before coming to Georgia Tech in 2001. For the past several years, he has enjoyed the unique distinction of having the longest surname at Georgia Tech.
