Professor Roshan Joseph has been appointed to an A. Russell Chandler III Chair in the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE). The A. Russell Chandler III Chair was created to enhance the Stewart School’s ability to attract and retain eminent teacher-scholars to this position of academic leadership. Prior to this appointment, Joseph held an A. Russell Chandler III Professorship, as well as a Coca-Cola Junior Chair Professorship.
Joseph’s research focuses on, broadly, applied and computational statistics. Specifically, experimental design, statistical modeling, Bayesian computation, quality engineering, uncertainty quantification, machine learning, and big data analysis. He has several years of consulting experience in solving quality-related problems in industries.
“Congratulations to Roshan on this great honor and recognition of his work developing novel statistical methods for solving complex engineering problems,” said ISyE School Chair Edwin Romeijn. “He has made many contributions to ISyE, to Georgia Tech, and to the field, and I look forward to his future accomplishments and leadership in the field of engineering analytics.”
“I am humbled and honored to receive this recognition,” said Joseph. “The chair position comes with great prestige and visibility that will help tremendously in advancing my research activities to a much higher level. I am thankful to ISyE and Georgia Tech for entrusting me with this prestigious position and very much look forward to contributing more to the field of engineering analytics, and to the School and institute’s mission in this new role.”
Joseph’s research has been honored since early in his academic career. He received the Distinguished Dissertation Award from the University of Michigan, where he completed his doctoral work (2003); a CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation (2005); the Jack Youden Prize from the American Society for Quality (2005); a Best Paper Award from IISE Transactions (2009); an INFORMS Edelman Laureate (2017); the Statistics in Physical & Engineering Sciences Award from the American Statistical Association (2019); and the SPAIG Award from the American Statistical Association (2020).
He is a Fellow of the American Statistical Association (2012) and of the American Society for Quality (2020). Currently, Joseph serves as editor-in-chief of Technometrics (2020-22), a premier journal of statistics in physical and engineering sciences.
