Nagi Gebraeel Joins Stewart School Faculty
Dr. Nagi Gebraeel (pronounced Gabriel) joined the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering as an assistant professor in July 2007.
"The opportunity to become part of ISyE's faculty is an honor,* said Gebraeel. "The School's research excellence and educational mission are driven by an outstanding faculty body, and the potential to collaborate with the world's experts in different areas of the industrial engineering discipline is extremely beneficial and rewarding.*
Gebraeel specializes in research that plays a vital role in the ability to accurately predict unexpected failures in complex engineering systems, such as manufacturing and service systems, transportation, civil structures, nuclear power plants, national infrastructure, among others. His work has a tremendous impact on human safety as well as the performance and effectiveness of these systems.
Gebraeel's research interests are in condition/health monitoring, sensor-based prognostics and degradation modeling, sensor-driven decision models for maintenance operations and service logistics. Current projects include:
* Real-time Degradation-Based Prognostics (funded by the NSF-Career Program)
* Prognostics of Electronic Systems (in collaboration with Rockwell Collins)
* Prognostics of Avionic Systems (in collaboration with the Joint Strike Fighter Program and Global Strategic Solutions)
* Prognostics of Power Systems for Military Aircrafts (in collaboration with Naval Air Systems Command and Global Strategic Solutions)
Gebraeel will be teaching courses in probability and statistics, reliability, and special topics on prognostic methods beginning Fall Semester.
"We are delighted to have Nagi join the Stewart School faculty as an assistant professor,* said Chelsea C. White III, Stewart School Chair. "Nagi is a future academic leader and scholar whose research is currently focused on the use of sensor information for component reliability degradation analysis and for system maintenance management. For his innovative work and research promise, he has recently received an NSF CAREER award. He will help to strengthen the engineering side of the statistics-quality group and will serve as a bridge with other groups in ISyE, notably the manufacturing group, and with other schools like Mechanical, Electrical and Materials.*
Gebraeel comes to Georgia Tech from the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at the University of Iowa, where he served as assistant professor of Industrial Engineering. Prior to this, he was visiting assistant professor in the School of Industrial Engineering at Purdue University.
Gebraeel earned his bachelor's degree in Mechanical/Production Engineering from the University of Alexandria in Egypt. He earned a master's and doctorate in Industrial Engineering from Purdue University.
