The Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), the largest association for decision and data sciences, has announced that Mark Lewis, the Director of the School of Operations Research and Information Engineering at Cornell, is among the 12 outstanding members named as 2021 Fellows, one of the highest honors in the O.R. profession.

“When I scroll through the list of fellows, I find several people that I admire and some that have served as informal mentors along my journey,” said Lewis. “This makes it all the more gratifying to be recognized as a member of this prestigious group.”

The 2021 INFORMS Fellows will be inducted during the 2021 INFORMS Annual Meeting, Oct. 24-27, which will be held both virtually and on location in Anaheim, Calif. INFORMS Fellows are honored for their outstanding lifetime accomplishments and contributions in operations research and analytics.  

Lewis is the Maxwell M. Upson Professor of Engineering in the School of Operations Research and Information Engineering at Cornell University. He is being honored for his great impact in advancing minority issues, extended professional service to INFORMS, excellence in academic leadership, and research and teaching in stochastic modeling.
