Gebraeel Appointed Chandler Family Associate Professor
Nagi Gebraeel has been appointed Chandler Family Associate Professor in the Stewart School of Industrial & Systems Engineering (ISyE) for a three year term of service, beginning August 15, 2013. The Chandler Family Early Career Professorship is designed to enhance the ability of ISyE to “attract and retain eminent teacher-scholars.”
Gebraeel’s accomplishments to date are impressive. His research focuses on improving the accuracy of predicting unexpected failures of engineering systems by leveraging real-time sensor-based data streams. His major research interests are in the areas of sensor-based prognostics and degradation modeling, reliability engineering, and maintenance operations and logistics. Prof. Gebraeel is also the director of the Advanced Prognostics Laboratory for supporting research in Diagnostics, Prognostics and Condition Monitoring. Dr. Gebraeel's contributions to education include an instrumental role in establishing ISyE’s System Informatics and Control (SIAC) PhD Focus. Dr. Gebraeel is also leading efforts in establishing the Center for Predictive Analytics and Real-Time Optimization, in the Supply Chain and Logistics Institute. His work has been recognized by the 2006 Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Material Modeling and Testing Recognition Award, the 2006 IEEE-AUTOTESTCON, and the 2008 SAE Aircraft Electrical Power System Recognition Award. In 2007 the National Science Foundation (NSF) recognized Gebraeel with a CAREER Award. Gebraeel is a member of IIE, INFORMS, and AIAA. He was the President of the IIE Quality and Reliability Engineering Division(2011-2012). He received his MS and PhD from Purdue University in 1998 and 2003, respectively.
"The Chandler Family early career professorship appointment provides a well-deserved opportunity to enhance Gebraeel’s growing research and educational impacts,” said Jane Ammons, ISyE School Chair.
