Lisa Miller is a Morse Alumni Distinguished Teaching Professor in the University of Minnesota’s Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering.
Prof. Miller earned her PhD from Georgia Tech in 2002. She began her career as an IMA postdoctoral associate at U of M, and then moved into an Assistant Professor position. In 2007, she began a six-year tenure as an optimization analyst and analytics manager at Target Corporation.
In 2013, she returned to the Department of ISyE as director of the Department’s newly launched undergraduate program. In this role, she advises and teaches over 200 students each year, establishes relationships with local companies to sponsor Senior Design projects, develops innovative curricular improvements, and collaborates with faculty across campus to improve the undergraduate offerings at U of M.
