August 2021 - INFORMS DFW Chapter Update

Good morning INFORMS DFW Chapter members,

I hope that you are doing well during these unusual times. 

I am Michael Monticino and recently took over as president of the DFW Chapter. I am currently chair of the Advanced Data Analytics program at the University of North Texas. Your other chapter officers are

Vice president: Negin Enayaty Ahangar, Senior Lecturer, Operations Management, UT Dallas
Treasurer/Secretary: Justin Yates, Manager, Operations Research & Advanced Analytics, American Airlines

We are looking forward to working with you to enhance chapter activities and providing new opportunities for you to network with other chapter members. 

Our first event will be a great talk by Scott Mason, Principal Research Scientist, Middle Mile Planning, Research, and Optimization Science at Amazon on September 23. More information on Scott's talk will be coming soon (it will be via Zoom). 

We will also keep you posted on other activities and planned changes to the chapter website and LinkedIn presence. 

Hope to see you on September 23. 

Best regards,

Michael Monticino, PhD
