ORIE Colloquium: Georgia-Ann Klutke (NSF) - Navigating NSF: Funding Opportunities for Operations Research

Tuesday, September 18, 2018 at 4:15pm

Frank H. T. Rhodes Hall, 253

The National Science Foundation offers a number of funding opportunities for investigators working in the field of operations research, both within the disciplinary programs in Engineering and other directorates, and through cross-cutting initiatives that are foundation-wide. This presentation will describe opportunities that are relevant to the industrial and operations research communities, with particular emphasis on the Operations Engineering program in the Division of Civil, Mechanical, and Manufacturing Innovation. For those not familiar with NSF, opportunities for junior investigators and an introduction to the merit review process will also be described.

Georgia-Ann Klutke is the Program Director for the Operations Engineering program at the National Science Foundation. She retired in 2015 as Professor in the Industrial and Systems Department at Texas A&M University. She has also served on the faculties of The University of Texas at Austin and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. She holds a B.S. (Mathematics) and M.S. (Biostatistics) from the University of Michigan and a Ph.D. (Industrial Engineering and Operations Research) from VPI&SU. She is a Fellow of the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers.
