Hausman Becomes Professor Emeritus

August 28, 2017

Colleague Hau Lee presents Hausman with a gift from over 50 of his former students at a small department celebration in May.

Management Science and Engineering Professor Warren Hausman is now Professor Emeritus of MS&E, after 40 years of service at Stanford.

Hausman arrived at Stanford in 1977, as Professor of Industrial Engineering-Engineering Management (IE-EM). He then served as Chair of IE-EM for ten years (1982 to 1992), and during that time was instrumental in hiring several of MS&E's current faculty as the department grew.

Professionally, Hausman has served as council member of the Institute of Management Sciences and the Operations Research Society of America, and was President-Elect of Operations Research Society of America (ORSA) in 1994. He has held many other positions in academia and industry, including that as a Board Member and Fellow of the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), and he has served on the technical advisory boards for Silicon Valley startups.

In addition to his professional work, Hausman is a celebrated teacher, having graduated many respected PhD students. Colleague Hau Lee (Stanford Graduate School of Business) wrote in a laudation of Hausman's career, "Many of his PhD students have had great accomplishments and are now pillars of our profession. He has a special ability to link observations in real life problems to academic research formulation."

The department held a small, private gathering in May to celebrate Hausman as a scholar, teacher, leader, and friend.
