2014 Pritsker Lecture - Dr. Peter W. Glynn
|Event Date:||April 17, 2014|
|Location:||Stewart Center - Room 206
Dr. Peter W. Glynn, Professor in the School of Engineering, Departments of Management Science and Engineering, and the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering at Stanford University will speak on April 17 for the Pritsker Scholars Distinguished Lecture Series at Purdue University.
The series, presented by the Purdue School of Industrial Engineering, is named for the late Alan Pritsker, who made major contributions to industrial engineering, particularly in the area of computer simulation.
The lecture series reinforces Pritsker's legacy at Purdue and in the field of industrial engineering. As a leader in simulation, he was pivotal in building the School of Industrial Engineering's reputation. He helped it become a frontrunner in research and thought leadership.
Pritsker was on the Purdue faculty from 1970-98. In 1973 he co-founded Pritsker & Associates to use computer simulation technologies to solve problems in industry and government. In 1989 Pritsker Corp. was formed from the merger of Pritsker & Associates and FACTROL.
