About the Speaker

Dr. Daniel Apley is I am a Professor of Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences at Northwestern University, Evanston, IL. I obtained B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering and an M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan. Prior to joining Northwestern University in 2003, I served on the faculty of Texas A&M University for five years. I am an industrial statistician with research interests that lie at the interface of engineering modeling, statistical analysis, and predictive analytics. My work has been supported by numerous industries and government agencies, and I received the NSF CAREER award, the IIE Transactions Best Paper Award, and the Wilcoxon Prize for best practical application paper appearing in Technometrics. I currently serve as Editor-in-Chief Elect for Technometrics, the premier journal of the American Statistical Association and the American Society for Quality on statistical methods for the engineering, physical, chemical, and information sciences. I have also served as Editor-in-Chief for the Journal of Quality Technology, Chair of the Quality, Statistics & Reliability Section of INFORMS, and Director of the Manufacturing and Design Engineering Program at Northwestern.


Since the 1970's the University of Georgia Department of Statistics and the Clemson University Mathematical Sciences Department have organized the annual UGA/Clemson Joint Seminar which alternates between Athens and Clemson each year.
