On Friday, May 28, 2010, Jim Burress, reporter/host with WABE/NPR 90.1, interviewed Ozlem Ergun, associate professor in the School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) and co-director of the Center for Health and Humanitarian Logistics, about her recent trip to Haiti. Ergun, along with Julie Swann, ISyE associate professor and Center co-director; Reginald DesRoches, School of Civil & Environmental Engineering (CEE); and students Jessica Heier Stamm (ISyE), Kael Stilp (ISyE) and Josh Gresha (CEE), traveled to Haiti in May to look at debris collection and removal issues there.
