Santanu Dey Appointed as A. Russell Chandler III Professor
Georgia Tech’s H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) announced that Professor Santanu Dey has been appointed to an A. Russell Chandler III Professorship for a three-year term.
ISyE alumnus A. Russell Chandler III (BIE 67) established the endowment fund in order to enhance the ability of ISyE to attract and retain eminent teacher-scholars in positions of academic leadership.
Dey’s research focuses on non-convex optimization, and in particular, mixed integer linear and nonlinear programming. His research is partly motivated by applications of non-convex optimization arising in areas such as electrical power systems, the petroleum industry, and logistics.
“I am honored to be selected for the Chandler professorship,” said Dey. “It will help further my research initiatives, including supporting graduate students and travel.”
Dey was awarded first place in the INFORMS Nicholson Student Paper Competition in 2007. He was a finalist in the INFORMS Junior Faculty Interest Group (JFIG) Paper Competition in 2010, 2011, and 2012. He received an NSF CAREER Award in 2012.
Dey earned both a Ph.D. in industrial engineering (2007) and an M.S. in industrial engineering (2003) from Purdue University, and a B.E. in mechanical engineering (2000) from Mumbai University.
He was previously appointed to the ISyE Fouts Family Early Career Professorship in 2013.
