John Baugh is a Professor of Civil Engineering and Operations Research at North Carolina State University. He received the Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University in 1989.
In addition to carrying out research and instructional programs, Dr. Baugh works broadly within the university to improve the educational opportunities and outcomes of its students. Included among those efforts is leadership in creating a new graduate program in the areas of computing and systems engineering, and serving as director of the NC Japan Center.
Before pursuing the Ph.D., he worked as a Research Engineer in Applied Mechanics and Structures at Battelle’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. He is a member of ACM, INFORMS, Phi Kappa Phi, Tau Beta Pi, and Chi Epsilon.
