Dey Appointed Fouts Family Assistant Professor
Santanu Dey has been appointed the Fouts Family Assistant Professor in the Stewart School of Industrial & Systems Engineering (ISyE) for a three year term of service, beginning August 15, 2013. The Fouts Family Early Career Professorship is designed to enhance the ability of ISyE to “attract and retain eminent teacher-scholars.”
Dey's research is in the area of non-convex optimization, and in particular mixed integer linear and nonlinear programming. His research is partly motivated by applications of non-convex and discrete optimization arising in areas such as economics, logistics and petroleum industry. Dey has been honored by the 2007 INFORMS George Nicholson Student Paper Prize, the 2009 IBM Faculty Award, and the 2012 National Science Foundation CAREER Award. In addition, he has been a finalist in the INFORMS Junior Faculty Interest Group Paper Competition in 2010, 2011, and 2012. Dey was selected as a 2010 Class of 1969 Teaching Fellow by the Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning at Georgia Tech. He worked as a research fellow at the Center for Operations Research and Econometrics (CORE) of the Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium. He joined the faculty of the Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering on July 1, 2009.
“The Fouts Family early career professorship appointment provides a well-deserved opportunity to enhance Dey’s growing research and educational impacts,” said Jane Ammons, ISyE School Chair.
