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 College of Engineering Dean’s Professor in the Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, with a joint appointment in the Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering (AE), and director of the Air Transportation Laboratory at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
His research focuses on the development and use of stochastic models and optimization algorithms to improve the efficiency and robustness of aircraft, airline, airport, and air traffic operations. Of particular note, his research in aircraft trajectory prediction and optimization, especially as it pertains to the development of flight procedures that reduce the environmental impact of aviation, has been instrumental in changing both the theory and the practice of flight procedure design.
Dr. Clarke was co-chair of the National Academies committee that developed the U.S. National Agenda for Autonomy Research related to civil aviation, and a member of the National Academies committee that reviewed the Next Generation Air Transportation System. He is currently co-chair of the Joint Planning Committee for the AIAA-AAAF Aviation Noise and Emissions Reduction Symposium (ANERS) and a member of the NASA Advisory Council Aeronautics Committee. Over the years, he has chaired or served on advisory and technical committees chartered by the AIAA, EU, FAA, ICAO, NASA, the National Academies, the U.S. Army, and the U.S. Department of Transportation.
He received the S.B., S.M., and Sc.D. degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1991, 1992, and 1997, respectively. His many prior honors include the 1999 AIAA/AAAE/ACC Jay Hollingsworth Speas Airport Award, the 2003 FAA Excellence in Aviation Award, the 2006 National Academy of Engineering Gilbreth Lectureship, the 2012 AIAA/SAE William Littlewood Lectureship, and the SAE Environmental Excellence in Transportation Award in 2015. He is a Fellow of the AIAA and is a member of AGIFORS, INFORMS, and Sigma Xi.
