Industrial engineering, operations research, and systems engineering are fields of study intended for individuals who are interested in analyzing and formulating abstract models of complex systems with the intention of improving system performance. Unlike traditional disciplines in engineering and the mathematical sciences, the fields address the role of the human decision-maker as key contributor to the inherent complexity of systems and primary benefactor of the analyses.

Edward He is a PhD student in Operations Research at the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech. Before coming to Georgia Tech, he completed a four-year integrated master's program, receiving a MMath degree with two first-class honors at the University of Oxford, U.K..
His current research is primarily on methods to tackle large-scale transportation problems which have an aspect of time, in particular, variants of the time-dependent shortest path problem and the service network design problem with loading and unloading capacity. In addition, he is also interested in computational complexity of such problems.
His previous research areas include interior point methods, decomposition methods for variational inequality problems and regret-based optimization.
