Dr. Jessye Talley is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering. Dr. Talley attended North Carolina A&T University where she received a Bachelor's Degree in Industrial Engineering (2008), a Master’s degree (2011) and a PhD (2016) in Industrial and Systems Engineering. Her PhD focused on Operations Research and Supply Chain Management. Dr. Talley's academic specialty and interest focuses on problems that identify vulnerabilities and disruptions that occur within supply chains to develop intervention or mitigation strategies that optimize the total system. She uses the following methods for her research:

  • Stochastic and deterministic modeling
  • Simulation
  • Stochastic programming
  • Markov chains
  • Differential equations
  • Linear programming
  • Queueing theory

Dr. Talley is focused on two main application areas: agricultural and humanitarian. Under agriculture, she considers 4 areas:

  • Food Supply Chain Optimization
  • Food Contamination (Risk)
  • Supply Chain Traceability
  • Food Waste

Dr. Talley works with undergraduate and graduate students in the Risk Optimization Management and Evaluation (R.O.M.E) Lab.
