Candace Yano: Engineering + business + industry
Candace “Candi” Yano lives at the intersection of engineering, business and industry. Known for her work in logistics, supply chain and service management, she focused her early research on analytical models for optimizing operational decisions in response to uncertainty in demand and lead times in multi-stage manufacturing systems. While she continues to work on related problems, she has recently been interested in interdisciplinary problems at the interface between operations management and marketing.
Now serving a dual academic role as the Gary & Sherron Kalbach Chair in Business Administration at Berkeley Haas and as a professor in the Department of Industrial Engineering & Operations Research (IEOR), Yano was that department’s first female chair. She also serves as the senior vice president for publications at the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers and on the Editorial Board for INFORMS Journals. In recognition of her work, she was named an IISE fellow and INFORMS fellow and won the 2008 WORMS Award for Advancement of Women in OR/MS. She also won the George E. Kimball Medal in 2018 for her distinguished service to Operations Research.
