It is imperative that we stay current in our field, and correspondingly I am active within my profession. I have served as an ad hoc reviewer for a number of journals/conferences including IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management, EJOR, OMEGA, IJQRM, IJPE, IJOPM, IJOQM, JOM, Current Analytical Chemistry, and Decision Sciences. At conferences I have served as session chair and discussant to research presentations. I also keep my membership current with Decision Sciences Institute, APICS, and the Production & Operations Management Society. In addition, I enjoy interacting with media groups such as the local NPR stations.
