- Assstant Professor, Department of Engineering, College of Technology and Innovation
Jennifer Bekki is an assistant professor in the Department of Engineering at Arizona State University-Polytechnic. She joined the faculty in August 2008 after completing her PhD in Industrial Engineering from the Fulton School of Engineering at ASU. While completing her doctoral studies, Dr. Bekki spent time working at Intel Corporation as a manufacturing modeling engineer, designing and building optimization tools/models relevant to the semiconductor industry. Dr. Bekki's current research interests include the modeling and analysis of complex manufacturing systems, the application of simulation modeling to real-world stochastic processes, and the development of new simulation methodologies. She is a member of the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), the Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE), the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), and the Society for Women Engineers (SWE).
