Professor Hossein Arsham joined University of Baltimore in 1983 and has demonstrated his major contribution through his research and effective teaching abilities both in the classroom and online. His teaching, research, and professional services activities are multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, and trans-disciplinary and include: general optimization, systems simulation, and statistical data analysis. His principal professional activities are in constructing model-based decision support systems that are understandable, easy to use, and provide useful managerial information. His work has been acknowledged for its contributions to his areas of decision making processes through numerous awards including: The Harry Y. Wright Chair for Distinguished Research, Regents' Faculty award for Excellence in Research and The CSX Chair. Dr. Arsham�s perspectives and experiences have led him to combine the decision-making framework and tools to better understand and connect the gaps between optimization theory, discrete event simulation, and probability and statistics. He is also consistently up-to-date on the growing trends in interventional managerial decision-making; and its increasing utilization in applications. Dr. Arsham is also well-known for his teaching ability and students appreciate his insight of making difficult concepts understandable. Teaching has been an intricate part of Dr. Arsham�s life at the University of Baltimore. He is considered a pioneer in online teaching.
