Shu-Cherng Fang is currently the Walter Clark Chair and University Alumni Distinguished Graduate Professor of Operations Research and Industrial Engineering at the North Carolina State University. He is also holding the positions of University Chair Professor and Team Leader of Chair Professors of Mathematical Sciences and Industrial Engineering of Tsinghua University (Beijing), University Chair Professor of the National Chiao Tung University (Hsinchu), University Advisory Professor of the Graduate University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (Beijing), Honorary University Professor of Shanghai University (Shanghai) and Honorary University Professor of Northeast University (Shenyang). He has been the Director of Graduate Programs in Operations Research and Industrial Engineering at North Carolina State University for more than eleven year. Before he joined the North Carolina State University as Professor of Operations Research and Industrial Engineering in 1988, Shu-Cherng Fang had been Assistant Professor of Mathematics at the University of Maryland (Baltimore County), Distinguished Member of Technical Staffat AT&T Engineering Research Center (Princeton), Supervisorat AT&T Bell Laboratories (Holmdel), and Department Managerat AT&T Corporate Headquarters (Berkeley Heights). He has also served as University Examiner and Academic Advisor at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, University of Science and Technologies of Hong Kong and Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
Shu-Cherng Fang’s research interests include variational inequalities and complementarity theory, large-scale linear and nonlinear programming, entropy optimization, neural computing and fuzzy systems theory, with applications to building intelligent human-machine decision support systems for manufacturing, logistics and telecommunications. He has published a couple of graduate textbooks and a few research articles. In addition to serve as the launching Editor-in-Chief of Fuzzy Optimization and Decision Making, he is currently serving in the editorial boards of fifteen professional journals in the areas of Operations Research, Industrial Engineering, Management Science, Optimization Theory and Fuzzy Systems. He had severed as Secretary, Vice President and President of the Association of Chairpersons of Operations Research Departments and was elected to Fellow of the Institute of Industrial Engineers.

Shu-Cherng Fang visits often the Department of Mathematics and Department of Industrial Engineering and Engineering Management of his al’ma ma’ter. He has been a visiting professor at Tsinghua and served in an academic review panel for the university. He enjoys working with his college professors, colleagues and students at Tsinghua. He has also hosted a few faculty members and graduate students from Tsinghua at the North Carolina State University.
