Jose E. Ramirez-Marquez, Ph.D.

Associate Professor



Dr. Ramirez-Marquez been a researcher all his life with an interest in developing computational techniques to solve a variety of problems. Currently, his research efforts focus on the reliability analysis and optimization of complex systems, the development of mathematical models for networks operational effectiveness, the computational analysis of resilience and, the development of evolutionary optimization algorithms. In these areas, Dr. Ramirez-Marquez has conducted funded research for both private industry and government. Also, he has published more than 70 refereed manuscripts related to these areas in technical journals, book chapters, conference proceedings and industry reports. Dr. Ramirez-Marquez has presented his research findings both nationally and internationally in conferences such as INFORMS, IERC, ARSym and ESREL. He is an Associate Editor for the International Journal of Performability Engineering. Nationally, he serves as the current President of the Quality Control and Reliability division board of  the Institute of Industrial Engineers. Internationally, he is a member of the Technical Committee on System Reliability for the European Safety and Reliability Association.
