Research and Teaching

Dr. Reveliotis' research interest is in the area of Discrete Event Systems theory and its applications. His current research focuses on: (i) the logical / structural control of flexibly automated production systems, workflow management systems and guidepath-based traffic systems; (ii) the development of effective scheduling policies for these environments; and (iii) the development of customized implementations / algorithms of approximate dynamic programming and machine learning theory for the aforementioned application contexts.

His teaching activity focuses on topics related to: (i) applied operations research, (ii) production planning and control, and (iii) supervisory control of Discrete Event Systems. (see also the "Courses" section, below)

Finally, he has an active interest in the web-based multimedia technology as a research and education enabler. A product of his activity in this area is a "prototype electronic textbook" for Linear Prorgamming and the Simplex Algorithm.

Background and Affiliations

Dr. Reveliotis received his Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering from the University of Illinois in 1996. He also holds a M.Sc. in Computer Systems Engineering from Northeastern University, Boston, and a Diploma in Electrical Engineering from Natl. Tech. University of Athens, Greece. Since September 1996, Dr. Reveliotis has been a faculty member of the School of Industrial & Systems Engineering, at Georgia Tech.

Dr. Reveliotis is an IEEE Fellow, a member of IIE and INFORMS, and a registered engineer with the Technical Chamber of Greece.
