Edwin Romeijn serves as the H. Milton and Carolyn J. Stewart School Chair at the Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech. As chair, Dr. Romeijn is responsible for overseeing the nation’s largest industrial engineering program, which has consistently been ranked No. 1 in both graduate and undergraduate education by the U.S. News & World Reports.
His areas of expertise include optimization theory and applications. His recent research activities deal with issues arising in radiation therapy treatment planning and supply chain management. In radiation therapy treatment planning, his main goal has been to develop new models and algorithms for efficiently determining effective treatment plans for cancer patients who are treated using radiation therapy, and treatment schedules for radiation therapy clinics. In supply chain optimization, his main interests are in the integrated optimization of production, inventory, and transportation processes, in particular in the presence of demand flexibility, limited resources, perishability, and uncertainty.
Dr. Romeijn has published numerous reviewed publications and books. He is currently associate editor of IIE Transactions.
He previously served as the program director for the Manufacturing Enterprise Systems, Service Enterprise Systems, and Operations Research programs at the National Science Foundation, and as professor and Richard C. Wilson Faculty Scholar in the Department of Industrial and Operations Engineering at the University of Michigan. Before joining The University of Michigan in 2008 he was on the faculty of the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at the University of Florida and the Rotterdam School of Management at the Erasmus University Rotterdam in The Netherlands.
He is a member of the Institute of Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), Mathematical Optimization Society (MOS), Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), and the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM).
Dr. Romeijn received his M.S. in econometrics and Ph.D. in operations research from Erasmus University Rotterdam in the Netherlands in 1988 and 1992, respectively.
