In January 2020, I joined the Industrial Engineering department faculty at the University of Pittsburgh after almost 20-years of industry experience working in different roles within manufacturing organizations. I have taught courses in supply chain management, manufacturing operations, Lean/Six Sigma, and quality assurance/control. My research interests include engineering education, supply chain reliability, and predictive analytics, focusing on applying numerical methods to solve real-world problems. I am a registered professional engineer in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, an ASQ Certified Six Sigma Black Belt, a published author, and have spoken at several industry conferences and trade organization events.
