The American Society for Quality (ASQ) has elected Roshan Joseph, an A. Russell Chandler III Professor in the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE), as a Fellow. In particular, ASQ cited Joseph “for outstanding contributions to statistical theory and methods for quality improvement; for dedicated teaching and service to the profession.”
“I started my career as a quality consultant through the Indian Statistical Institute, which motivated my doctoral study at the University of Michigan on statistical methods for quality improvement,” noted Joseph. “A major part of my research still focuses on quality engineering and therefore, this recognition from ASQ means a lot to me.”
Joseph’s research interests are in the broad areas of applied and computational statistics. A major focus of his research is in developing novel statistical methods for solving complex engineering problems. He has several years of consulting experience in solving quality-related problems in industries.
Joseph has received numerous honors for his statistical research. This includes the Jack Youden Prize from ASQ in 2005; the Edelman Laureate from INFORMS in 2017; the Statistics in Physical & Engineering Sciences Award from the American Statistical Association in 2019; and the SPAIG Award from the American Statistical Association in 2020. He is also a Fellow of the American Statistical Association (2012) and is currently serving as the editor-in-chief of Technometrics, a journal of statistics jointly published by ASA and ASQ.
“Roshan Joseph is recognized as a world leader in engineering statistics and quality engineering. In my opinion, he is the best researcher of his generation in these two areas. Election to the ASQ Fellowship is one more recognition of his high status among his peers,” said ISyE Coca-Cola Chair in Engineering Statistics and Professor Jeff Wu, who works closely with Joseph.
ASQ empowers people, communities, and organizations of the world to achieve excellence through quality.
