Santanu S. Dey is an Associate Professor in the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. Dr. Dey holds a Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering from Purdue University. Prior to joining Georgia Tech, he worked as a post-doctoral fellow at the Center for Operations Research and Econometrics (CORE) of the Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium.

Dr. Dey's research interests are in the area of non convex optimization, and in particular mixed integer linear and nonlinear programming. His research is partly motivated by applications of non convex optimization arising in areas such as electrical power systems, petroleum industry, and logistics. Dr. Dey has served as the vice chair for Integer Programming for INFORMS Optimization Society (2011-2013) and has served on the program committee of Mixed Integer Programming Workshop 2013 and Integer Programming and Combinatorial Optimization 2017. He currently serves on the editorial board of Computational Optimization and Applications, MOS-SIAM book series on Optimization, and is an associate editor for INFORMS Journal on Computing, Mathematical Programming A, and SIAM Journal on Optimization.
