Georgia Tech’s H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) announced that Professor Roshan Joseph has been appointed to an A. Russell Chandler III Professorship for a three-year term.
ISyE alumnus A. Russell Chandler III (BIE 67) established the endowment fund in order to enhance the ability of ISyE to attract and retain eminent teacher-scholars in positions of academic leadership.
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.
“I am honored to have received this professorship,” said Joseph. “The funds associated with it will allow me to greatly strengthen and advance my current research and outreach activities.”
His numerous honors include the Distinguished Dissertation Award from the University of Michigan in 2003, an NSF CAREER Award in 2005, the Jack Youden Prize from the American Society for Quality in 2005, the Best Paper Award from IIE Transactions in 2009, the Edelman Laureate from INFORMS in 2017, and the Statistics in Physical and Engineering Sciences Award from the American Statistical Association in 2019. Joseph is a Fellow of the American Statistical Association (elected in 2012). Currently, he serves as the editor-elect of Technometrics and will become the editor-in-chief in 2020.
He received a Ph.D. in statistics from the University of Michigan (2002), an M.Tech. in quality, reliability, and operations research from the Indian Statistical Institute (1995), and a B.Tech. in production engineering and management from the University of Calicut (1993).
Joseph was previously appointed to the ISyE Coca-Cola Associate Professorship in 2008.
