Industrial and systems engineering Professor Susan Albin was named among the class of 2020 Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS) Fellows. INFORMS is dedicated to promoting best practices and advances in operations research, management science, and analytics. As the field's largest professional association, INFORMS and its members work to improve operational and decision-making processes, and outcomes.
Albin, who joined Rutgers in 1981, helped shape the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering as one of the earliest professors to join the newly formed department. She has been an active member of INFORMS for many years, serving a president of the organization in 2010. Her service to the profession and to INFORMS has culminated in her election to the INFORMS Fellow Award.
