BACKGROUND

Professor Beamon joined the program in 1999.   She holds the following degrees:

  • BS in Industrial Engineering from Northwestern University
  • MS in Operations Research from Cornell University
  • Ph.D. in Industrial and Systems Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology

SCHOLARLY PURSUITS

The primary focus of Dr. Beamon’s research program is to use quantitative methods (discrete-event simulation, mathematical modeling, and statistics) to develop management policies for humanitarian relief, supply chain, and production systems. Dr. Beamon’s early work focused on developing and applying performability (performance and reliability) measures to production systems, which provided a foundation for research focused on larger-scale production and service (supply chain) systems. Since then, Dr. Beamon has applied this foundation to new areas, including environmentally conscious supply chain management and humanitarian relief chains.
