Congratulations to Siqian Shen for her promotion to Industrial and Operations Engineering Associate Professor with Tenure!
Professor Shen earned her BS from Tsinghua University in China in 2007 and her Ph.D. from the University of Florida in 2011. She joined the IOE faculty in Fall 2011.
Her research is in integer programming, stochastic programming, and network optimization. The models she considers usually feature stochastic parameters and discrete decision variables. In general, optimal solutions are desired for trading off between the immediate benefits and the long-run gains, or between cost effectiveness and operational risk. Applications include risk analysis and optimization of energy, healthcare, cloud-computing, and transportation systems. She currently serves as an Associate Director for the Michigan Institute for Computational Discovery and Engineering (MICDE).
