CPHHS research seminar

Friday, January 19, 2018 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

CPHHS research seminar. Harriet B. Nembhard, PhD, is the Eric R. Smith professor of engineering and head of the School of Mechanical, Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering (MIME).

She leads this unit of 75 faculty and staff in fulfilling its vision to be an inclusive and collaborative academic community, its mission to educate students as profession-ready engineering graduates, its pursuit of research and innovation to drive world-changing breakthroughs, and its dedication to being a partner of choice for industry and government.

Her own research employs methods of statistics and operations research to improve complex systems and has led to numerous advances including the development of visualization methods for communicating healthcare data, a patented manufacturing process for small-scale medical devices, simulation models for assessing emergency department performance, modeling patient adherence to treatment, and tools for quantifying research translation. She is co-author of a ground-breaking textbook, Healthcare Systems Engineeering and has directed over 200 faculty and students on applied research projects in healthcare delivery that engaged AT&T, Highmark, Siemens, Verizon as well as several hospitals.

Dr. Nembhard has also been active in mentoring women and underrepresented minorities in the academic institution and has served frequently for many programs to positively impact STEM education, equity and inclusion, and student leadership.
