Dr. Jianjun Shi is the Carolyn J. Stewart Chair and Professor at H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering and George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology. Prior to joining Georgia Tech in 2008, he was the G. Lawton and Louise G. Johnson Chair Professor of Engineering, Professor of the Department of Industrial and Operations Engineering, and Professor of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan. He received his B.S. and M.S. in Electrical Engineering at the Beijing Institute of Technology in 1984 and 1987, and his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan in 1992.

Professor Shi's research interests focus on system informatics and control for the design and operational improvements of manufacturing and service systems. He is one of the early pioneers in the field. He has produced 29 Ph.D. graduates (20 of them have joined IE department as faculty members, 7 received NSF CAREER Awards, and one received the PECASE award, 3 serve as executive/directors in industrial companies). He has published one book and more than 160 papers and collectively received about 5900+ paper citations. He has also been closely working with industrial companies and has served as PI and co-PI for more than 19 million dollars of research grants. He has led various research projects funded by National Science Foundation, NIST Advanced Technology Program, Department of Energy, General Motors, Daimler-Chrysler, Ford, Lockheed-Martin, Honeywell, Pfizer, and various other industrial companies and funding agencies. The technologies developed in his research group have been implemented in various production systems with significant economic impacts.

Professor Shi is the founding chairperson of the Quality, Statistics and Reliability (QSR) Subdivision at the Institute for Operations Research and Management Science (INFORMS). He currently leads the System Informatics and Control Group of ISyE at Georgia Institute of Technology. He also served as the Director of Program in Manufacturing, co-Director of Global Automotive and Manufacturing Engineering, and Director of Laboratory for In-Process Quality Improvement Research (IPQI) at the University of Michigan. He also served as an Associate Director of a NSF Industrial/University Corporative Research Center (IUCRC) and a thrust leader at NSF Engineering Research Center at UM. He is the founding Director of the Quality Science Center at the Chinese Academy of Science in China. He is currently serving as the Focus Issue Editor of IIE Transactions on Quality and Reliability Engineering, Editor, Journal of Systems Science and Complexity, Associate Editor, ASME Transactions, Journal of Manufacturing Science and Engineering, and Senior Editor of Chinese Journal of Institute of Industrial Engineering. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Industrial Engineering (IIE), a Fellow of American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME), a Fellow of Institute of Operations Research and the Management Science (INFORMS), an Academician of the International Academy for Quality, Elected Member of the International Statistical Institute (ISI), and also a life member of American Statistics Association (ASA).

Dr. Shi has received the IISE David F. Baker Distinguished Research Award(2016), the IIE Albert G. Holzman Distinguished Educator Award (2011), Forging Achievement Award from Forging Industry Educational and Research Foundation (2007), Monroe-Brown Foundation Research Excellence Award at The University of Michigan (2007), Excellence in Service Awards from IIE Transactions (2002, 2003, 2004), Robert M. Caddell Memorial Award 2001), Best Paper Awards from Industrial Engineering Research Conference (2006), ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress (2000), and North America Manufacturing Research Conference (2000). He has also received the NUTN Distance Education Innovation Team Award (2007) and the Sloan-C Program Profile Team Award (2006) as the co-Director of a professional master program. He was the recipients of the NSF CAREER Award (1996), 1938E Award at the COE (1998) and Faculty Achievement Awards at UM (2003).
