Anna Nagurney, the John F. Smith Memorial Professor at the Isenberg School of Management, has been elected a fellow of the Regional Science Association International (RSAI).
Founded in 1954, RSAI seeks to foster the exchange of ideas and research in order to facilitate new insights for dealing with regional problems. The award was created in 2001 to honor an elite group of the association’s members who have impacted the field of regional science through scholarly and focused research contributions.
“This is an award of the highest significance in our field of regional science and is made in honor of the extensive, meaningful and continuing contributions you have made to the intellectual base of the field of regional science,” said Roger Stough, president of RSAI.
Nagurney is one of five newly elected fellows. The formal award will be made during the coming year at one of the major regional meetings of the organization.
Nagurney, who also serves as director of the Virtual Center for Supernetworks and the Supernetworks Laboratory for Computation and Visualization, has been a faculty member in Finance and Operations Management since 1983. She was appointed as the John F. Smith Memorial Professor in 1998.
