Kelly Sullivan Selected to Receive Glover-Klingman Prize
Kelly Sullivan, assistant professor of industrial engineering, has been selected for the Glover-Klingman Prize for his paper "Exact algorithms for solving a Euclidean maximum flow network interdiction problem" published in the journal Networks.
His research interests center on the design of critical systems whose disruption poses a threat to homeland security. His work focuses on advancing relevant knowledge in the areas of network optimization, interdiction, reliability, and integer programming.
Sullivan obtained his doctorate in Industrial and Systems Engineering from the University of Florida in 2012. He teaches courses in network optimization, operations research, and probability and statistics
About the Award: The Glover-Klingman Prize is awarded each year to an individual or a group for the best paper published in Networks. Each co-author of the winning paper will receive a certificate and a cash award.
Fred Glover and Darwin Klingman (1944-1989) published more than 100 articles on the innovative implementation of network optimization algorithms. Their goal was to reduce computation time and memory requirements, thereby enabling solution of the larger, more realistic problems that confronted and continue to confront practitioners. In their joint work, they developed special list structures, labeling techniques, and clever hybrid algorithms and successfully applied these ideas to a variety of network optimization problems.
The Glover-Klingman Prize pays tribute to the high quality of their work at the interface of operations research and computer science. The prize, however, is for outstanding work in the general area of network modeling, analysis, and implementation, and is not limited to papers at the OR/CS interface.
The editors-in-chief, with assistance from members of the Editorial Board of Networks, select the winners of this annual award.
