Eva D. Regnier, Associate Professor

Eva D. Regnier, is an Associate Professor of Decision Science. She holds a Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering and a M.S. in Operations Research from the Georgia Institute of Technology, and a B.S. from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Her research is in decision making under uncertainty, with a focus on characterizing environmental uncertainty to support both optimization and judgmental decision making. She has studied the value of weather forecasts in making evacuation and other decisions, and has worked on energy and natural resources decisions. Her recent work on energy issues in the Department of Defense includes developing methods to estimate the system-wide impacts of energy use in forward positions and methods to estimate the value of technology demonstration projects in informing and improving future use of developing technologies. Her work has been funded by the National Science Foundation and the Office of Naval Research.
