The DAOL focuses on Engineering Service Systems, with applications in supply chain and healthcare. Our team has been collaborating on over $2.4 million in grants and contracts from the NSF, the VHA, the State of Ohio, and local industries. This has helped us develop cutting-edge solutions to real-world challenges using advanced data analytics, predictive modeling, simulation, and optimization approaches.

He was also awarded the Outstanding Advisor of the Year award (IISE, Great Lakes Region) and Advisor of the Year award (WSU).
The lab’s undergraduate and graduate student members have been honored on numerous occasions, including Best Track Paper Award at IISE Annual (3 times), Best Student paper at IISE Annual (2 times), nationally competitive IISE and MHEFI Scholarships, Graduate Student Excellence Award (once for PhD, 5 times for MS), University Research Assistantships, Department Scholarships, Outstanding Students, and Chair’s Choice Award.
