You can stay in touch with all things SCL through our news feed or attending one of our upcoming events. SCL includes some of the world’s most experienced researchers in their fields who enjoy sharing their perspectives on a wide variety of topics. Our faculty is world-renowned and our students are intellectually curious and our alumni can be found around the globe in leadership positions within a wide variety of fields.
SCL reaches out to students, educators, businesses and the logistics community in an effort to increase exposure and accessibility to supply chain & logistics expertise through a variety of educational programs, partnership opportunities and outreach activities.
New ideas and new tools are born in the robust research environment supported by the Supply Chain & Logistics Institute. Solutions and improvements produced by researchers provide businesses with the high level of competitiveness that is critical to their success in the marketplace both at home and overseas.
Thousands of logistics and supply chain management professionals have advanced their knowledge—and their companies’ profitability—with the education they obtained through the courses and graduate degree programs offered through the Supply Chain & Logistics Institute and Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering.
John-Paul Clarke is a professor in the Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering with a courtesy appointment in the Stewart School of Industrial & Systems Engineering, and director of the Air Transportation Laboratory at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
His research and teaching in the areas of control, optimization, and system analysis and design are motivated by his desire to simultaneously maximize the efficiency and minimize the societal impact (especially on the environment) of the global air transportation system. He has made seminal contributions in the areas of air traffic management, aircraft operations, and airline operations - three key elements of the air transportation system - and has been recognized globally for developing, among other things, key analytical foundations for the Continuous Descent Arrival (CDA) and novel concepts for robust airline scheduling.
Dr. Clarke is currently Chair of the U.S. Department of Transportation Advisory Council on Transportation Statistics (ACTS) and serves or has served on several other national and international committees including the Aeronautics and Space Engineering Board (ASEB) of the National Academies. He was the first Director of PARTNER, the Center of Excellence for Aviation Noise and Aircraft Emissions Mitigation, was an active researcher in NEXTOR, the Center of Excellence for Aviation Operations Research, and is now a co-Director of NEXTOR II, the follow-on operations research organization to NEXTOR. He is member of the AIAA, AGIFORS, INFORMS, and Sigma Xi.
