Jennifer Pazour, an Associate Professor in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, has been awarded an International Excellence Fellowship from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Karlsruhe, Germany.

This competitive award will allow Dr. Pazour, a leading expert in the use of mathematical models to guide decision making in supply chain and logistics challenges, to collaborate on site with KIT researchers in a three-month stay in the fall of 2022.

The research partnership will develop new approaches to design omni-channel facilities that support pleasant shopping experiences and efficient e-commerce order fulfillment, and reduce the strain on mobility and freight transportation systems. 

In addition, Dr. Pazour hopes to “explore further collaborative ventures between RPI and KIT — two leading global technology institutions. 

Dr. Pazour was selected by the Council for Research and Young Scientists at KIT based on the breadth of her previous scientific achievements and the originality and innovation of the proposed research project, among other criteria.

The International Excellence Fellowships were established by KIT to strengthen renewal capability and top-level research, expand its network to strengthen international recruiting, and to support strategic cooperation with international top-level universities and research institutions.
