Another Operations Research Dean

Sunil Kumar, currently at Stanford, has been named Dean of the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.  Sunil’s research has been in manufacturing, stochastic control, queueing networks, and related areas, making him clearly an operations research person (and of course he is a member of INFORMS).  He is an area editor of Operations Research, a position I suspect he will be giving up shortly.

It is amazing how often the field of operations research leads to academic administration.  Congrats Sunil!
