S. Raghavan promoted to full professor

Congratulations to ISR's S. Raghavan (BGMT/ISR), who has been promoted to the rank of full professor.

Raghavan's research primarily focuses on three areas: network design (e.g., telecommunications, logistics), data mining and auctions. The unifying feature to these various research areas is the network and combinatorial optimization techniques he applies to these problems. The research is supported by the National Science Foundation and the National Security Agency. Recently, Raghavan has co-edited a book on telecommunications network design and management. He has received several patents and prestigious awards for his research, including the George B.Dantzig Dissertation Award from INFORMS. Prior to joining the University of Maryland he led the Optimization Group at US WEST Advanced Technologies.
