New faculty member will begin in July 2019

The Industrial and Systems Engineering Department is pleased to welcome Daniel P. Robinson as an Associate Professor beginning on July 1, 2019.

Daniel earned his Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of California, San Diego. He has previously served as a Postdoctoral Researcher at Oxford University, a Postdoctoral Researcher and Visiting Professor at Northwestern University, and most recently as an Assistant Professor at Johns Hopkins University.

Daniel works at the intersection of Mathematical Optimization and Data Science. His broad research interests include Applied Linear Algebra, Operations Research, and Applied Mathematics. He designs, analyzes, and implements algorithms for solving continuous optimization problems arising from real-life applications.

His articles have appeared in top applied mathematics journals, such as Mathematical Programming and SIAM Journal on Optimization, as well as in top data science conference proceedings, such as for the International Conference on Machine Learning and IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition. He is already an Associate Editor for a reputed journal, Computational Optimization and Applications.

Daniel was a founding member of Johns Hopkins' Mathematical Institute for Data Science (MINDS) and helped to establish JHU's Master of Science in Data Science program. He has received multiple teaching awards during his time at JHU, including twice winning their Professor Joel Dean Award for Excellence in Teaching. He has been awarded numerous grants from the National Science Foundation and other funding agencies.

"I am excited to contribute to the teaching, service, and research mission of Lehigh University”, Daniel stated. “I plan to use my expertise in optimization to make impactful contributions to application areas in computer vision, healthcare, and beyond”.
