Congratulations to Newly Inducted Members of the National Academy of Engineering (who are also INFORMS Members)!

The National Academy of Engineering (NAE) has announced the newly elected members for 2010.

This group includes INFORMS (Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences) members: Dr. Cynthia Barnhart, the Associate Dean of Engineering at MIT, Dr. Hau Lee, of the Stanford Graduate School of Business, and the former editor of the journal Management Science, and Dr. William Pulleyblank, a Vice President of IBM.

Dr. Barnhart spoke in the Speaker Series that the UMass Amherst INFORMS Student Chapter and I organize (in our Fall 2006 Series). It was a pleasure to host her. Dr. Barnhart is a past President of INFORMS.

Congratulations to all the newly elected members!
