"The move to UT Dallas is one of the best decisions that I have made, and I've been fortunate to be a part of the progress that we've seen in the Naveen Jindal School of Management. To me, being involved in the change process has probably been one of the most satisfying aspects of my career so far."
"Behavioral operations management is one of the fastest-growing areas of operations management. Already, the field of behavioral operations management has contributed to our understanding of how operations management models are likely to work in practice. It is my hope that down the road, this better understanding will improve how these models are implemented and used in industry."
"The point of doing research is to have somebody read it, and have somebody act on it, otherwise you might as well have not written it. It's nice to know that researchers and policy makers are being influenced by your work."
"Investiture is a tremendous demonstration of our University's commitment to excellence in scholarship. My field is global competition. So how do universities compete? It's really top faculty competing with other top faculty at other universities. In that regard, we are initiating at UT Dallas a fine tradition to honor top faculty."
"The message that Investiture sends to the University community as well as the outside community is that UT Dallas not only places a high value on research accomplishments, but also that UT Dallas is here to compete with the best universities in the U.S. with substantial numbers of distinguished professorships and chairs. We have the means of attracting the very best faculty out there and retaining them."
