POTSDAM --  Dr. Cecilia Martinez has been granted tenure and promoted from assistant professor to associate professor of engineering and management in the David D. Reh School of Business at Clarkson University.

Martinez studied industrial and systems engineering at Monterrey Tech in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico where she discovered her passion helping people do their jobs more easily and effectively, and ultimately help save money to companies.

Her research is in the area of systems and engineering management, primarily on applying quantitative (e.g., stochastic) modeling techniques to design and manage performance improvement initiatives for product development, manufacturing, and service environments.

Other areas of interests involve operation research and operations management, performance measurement, and lean process design.

She holds two doctoral degrees: one in engineering sciences from Monterrey Tech, and another in systems and engineering management from Texas Tech University at Lubbock.

Martinez has written and co-written award-wining articles for scholarly journals and refereed conference publications. She also serves as an associate editor for the Engineering Management Journal, and reviewer for the Journal for Enterprise Transformation, IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management, and Journal of Cleaner Production, among others. She is an active member of the Systems and Engineering Management Society.
