Georgia Tech’s H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) announced that Assistant Professor He Wang has been appointed to a Colonel John B. Day Early Career Professorship for a three-year term. The Colonel John B. Day endowment fund provides support for faculty and graduate students in ISyE.
Wang’s research interests include revenue management, supply chain and logistics, and statistical and online learning. His recent research focuses on developing data-driven methods for the interface between machine learning and operations management.
“I am honored to receive the Colonel John B. Day Early Career Professorship and am grateful to Colonel John B. Day for his generous support of ISyE students and faculty,” said Wang. “The Day professorship will help advance my research and educational plans in the upcoming years. I also want to thank ISyE School Chair Edwin Romeijn and other faculty and staff at the Stewart School for their continuous support in my career development.”
Wang received his Ph.D. in operations research in 2016 from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 2018, he was awarded first place in the INFORMS Junior Faculty Interest Group (JFIG) Paper Competition. In 2019, he received an Amazon Research Award for the project “Marketplace Design for Long-haul Ground Transportation.”
