Eight students attended INFORMS in Nashville this past November. Among them were five ORwE PhD students and three Mechanical Engineering (ME) PhD students. On energy modeling, Mike Wagner (ME) and Will Hamilton (ME) presented work on concentrated solar power, while Gladys Anyenya (ME) discussed fuel cell design and Mark Husted and Gavin Goodall presented work on micro grid optimization. In the mining area, Mojtaba Rezakhah and Levente Sipeki elaborated on open pit and underground mine planning models, respectively. Finally, Chris Richards represented military operations with a talk on minimum-risk routing through a mapped minefield.
