Letter From The Lead Editors

Summer 2022 Edition of OR/MS Tomorrow

Dear OR/MS Community Members,

We are pleased to share with you the Spring/Summer 2022 edition of OR/MS Tomorrow! We welcome three new members to the team:

  • Saeedeh Dehghani, as staff writer
  • Nandan Kumar Singh, as production editor
  • Sofia Perez-Guzman, as co-lead editor

We also thank all of our departing members for their great service and contributions to our magazine: Srinivasan Balan, Egbe-Etu Emmanuel Etu, Bukola Bakare, Elham Taghizade, Armagan Ozbilge, Saba Moeinizade, Piyal Sarkar, and Amro El-Adle. We wish you all a bright future!

In this issue, we discuss a myriad of topics in different areas, including the role of operations research in non-traditional OR/MS topics of ecological studies and modern art. From there, the issue jumps into data analysis, with an article presenting a scaffolded project implementation to teach data analytics to undergraduate students, and an article discussing how to visualize multidimensional data and use tours to help analysts to glean information from data. Lastly, the issue moves toward transportation matters with an interview with Dr. Ismael, who discusses urban freight and parking issues.

Submissions for the Fall/Winter 2022 issue are welcomed. Contact us via email at orms_tomorrow@mail.informs.org! We hope you enjoy this issue.

Jessica Leung and Sofia Perez-Guzman
