Shuguang Liu, Ph.D.
Operations Management and Information Systems
My research interests are in the area of Logistics of production, distribution, and transportation systems.
I had done some work on applying Genetic Algorithms to a family of Vehicle Routing Problems. My current projects research the modeling and solution approach of addressing uncertainties in the Vehicle Routing Problems.
A longer description of my research interests
I have reviewed papers for IIE Transaction, Production and Operations Management, Naval Research Logistics, Journal of Scheduling, Transportation Science, Annals of Operations Research, and Transportation Research Part E, among others.
I am the recipient of the Distinguished Service Award in 2012 at the School of Business, SUNY at New Paltz.
