Amelia Regan has been fascinated by freight transportation (especially trains and trucks) since she was a child. She worked for UPS when she was an undergraduate at the University of Pennsylvania. She later worked at the Association of American Railroads and then returned to UPS when they started an Operations Research Group in the late 1980’s. After finishing a Ph.D. under the inspirational supervision of Hani Mahmassani and Patrick Jaillet at the University of Texas, Austin, she joined the University of California, Irvine. Now a Professor Emeritus, she held appointments in Civil and Environmental Engineering and Computer Science over 25 years and supervised 22 PhD students and many MS students to completion. The opportunity to return to freight and logistics at this point in her career is a dream come true. There has never been a better time to be studying and working in supply chain management, an no better place to do it than the University of Washington.
