Dr. William P. Fox is an Emeritus Professor in the Department of Defense Analysis at the Naval Postgraduate School. Currently, he is a Visiting Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the College of William and Mary. He received his BS degree from the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York, his MS in operations research from the Naval Postgraduate School, and his Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering from Clemson University. He has taught at the United States Military Academy for twelve years until retiring for active military service, at Francis Marion University where he was the chair of mathematics for eight years, and twelve years at the Naval Postgraduate School. He has many publications and scholarly activities including over twenty books, twenty-four chapters of books & technical reports, over one hundred and fifty journal articles, and over one hundred and fifty conference presentations and mathematical modeling workshops. He has directed several international mathematical modeling contests through the Consortium of Mathematics and its Applications (COMAP): the HiMCM and the MCM. His interests include applied mathematics, optimization (linear and nonlinear), mathematical modeling, statistical models, model for decision making in business, industry, medical and government, and computer simulations. He is a member of INFORMS, the Military Application Society of INFORMS, Mathematical Association of America, and Society for Industrial and Applied mathematics where he has held numerous positions.
