Alumna Enlu Zhou earns tenure at Georgia Tech


Alumna Enlu Zhou (EE Ph.D. 2009) has been promoted to the rank of associate professor with tenure in the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial & Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech.

Her research interests include simulation optimization, stochastic control, and Monte Carlo methods, with applications in financial engineering and revenue management.

At Maryland she was advised by Professor Steve Marcus (ECE/ISR) and Professor Michael Fu (BMGT/ISR) and was part of the A. James Clark School of Engineering’s Future Faculty Program.

In 2015 she won a National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award for Optimization and Sampling in Stochastic Simulation. She also is the recipient of a 2012 Young Investigator award from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR). Her research focused on “Dynamic Decision Making under Uncertainty and Partial Information.”

Prior to joining Georgia Tech, Zhou served as an assistant professor in the Industrial & Enterprise Systems Engineering Department at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign from 2009 to 2013.
