Professor of Industrial Engineering , Iowa State University

Professor Sarah Ryan’s research examines the planning and operation of manufacturing and service systems under uncertainty. Currently, she is focusing on electric power systems and assembly systems. Issues under study by her research group include short term power system scheduling to accommodate renewable generation; analysis of the impact of gas system uncertainty on power system operations; and assessment of input reliability and solution quality in stochastic programming. Her work has been supported by the National Science Foundation, including a CAREER award, an AT&T Industrial Ecology Faculty Fellowship, the Department of Energy, and electric power systems consortia.
