Jun 22, 2021 | Atlanta, GA

Professor Dave Goldsman has been appointed to a Coca-Cola Foundation Professorship in the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE). The Coca-Cola Foundation Professorship was established to enhance the Stewart School’s ability to attract and retain eminent teacher-scholars to this position of academic leadership. Goldsman also directs ISyE’s master’s degree programs.

“This was really an unexpected honor, and I thank the Coca-Cola Foundation and my colleagues in the Stewart School for making it possible,” said Goldsman. “I’ll be using this professorship to attract students and visitors to ISyE.”

Goldsman’s research interests include simulation output analysis; statistical ranking and selection methods; and medical and humanitarian applications of operations research. 

Together with ISyE Professor Christos Alexopoulos, Goldsman won the 2007 INFORMS Simulation Society Outstanding Simulation Publication Award for their paper “To Batch or Not to Batch?” Goldsman, Alexopoulos, Claudia Antonini, and Jim Wilson were recognized with the 2010 IISE Transactions Best Paper Award in Operations Engineering and Analysis for “Area Variance Estimators for Simulation Using Folded Standardized Time Series.”  

Goldsman received the 2002 INFORMS Simulation Society's Distinguished Service Award. He also received a Fulbright fellowship in 2006 to lecture at Boğaziçi and Sabancı Universities in Istanbul, Turkey. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Industrial and System Engineers and a Fellow of the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences.
