Georgia Tech’s Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) announced that Andy Sun has been promoted to associate professor with tenure, effective August 15, 2018.

“Andy is to be congratulated on this professional accomplishment,” said H. Milton and Carolyn J. Stewart School Chair and Professor Edwin Romeijn. “Andy’s promotion to associate professor acknowledges his many successes in the areas of optimization and stochastic modeling, including applications in electric energy systems and electricity markets.”

About Andy Sun

In addition to his research in optimization and stochastic modeling, Sun also works on theory and algorithms for robust and stochastic optimization, and large-scale nonconvex optimization. His work has broad applications in electric energy systems and electricity markets.

Sun's doctoral thesis won the second prize of the 2011 INFORMS George B. Dantzig Award, given for the best dissertation in any area of operations research and the management sciences that is innovative and relevant to practice. His paper, “Adaptive Robust Optimization for Security-Constrained Unit Commitment Problem” has been highly cited and helped form a new area of research of optimization under uncertainty in electric power system. Sun’s research has also won several paper awards, among which, “Multistage Adaptive Robust Optimization for the Unit Commitment Problem” won the first prize of the 2017 INFORMS Energy, Natural Resources, and Environment Section Best Paper in Energy Award. “An Adaptive Optimization-based Load Shedding Scheme in Microgrids” received the Best Paper Award at the 51st Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences in 2018. He has had numerous papers published in flagship journals in both power systems and operations research, such as IEEE Transactions on Power Systems, Operations Research, and Mathematical Programming.

In 2011, he received a Ph.D. in operations research from the Operations Research Center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and a bachelor's degree in electronic engineering from Tsinghua University. Before joining ISyE, Sun spent a year as a postdoctoral researcher at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center.
