Elise Miller-Hooks

miller-hooks

Dr. Miller-Hooks holds the Bill and Eleanor Hazel Endowed Chair in Infrastructure Engineering in the Sid and Reva Dewberry Department of Civil, Environmental, and Infrastructure Engineering. Prior to this appointment, Dr. Miller-Hooks served as Program Director at NSF’s Civil Infrastructure Systems Program, lead Program Officer for the CRISP solicitation, and a cognizant program officer on CMMI’s Smart and Connected Communities initiative.

For over two decades, Elise Miller-Hooks has been applying and advancing concepts of operations research to civil and infrastructure systems applications.
Motivating Miller-Hooks’ research program is a strong desire to make a difference for society. Her work with her students and post-docs focuses on the development of algorithms and mathematically-based decision support tools for designing, operating, managing, maintaining, and protecting the built environment. Miller-Hooks’ research program has received funding from private, nonprofit and local, national and international government agencies. She puts her creative energy into many areas, but most notably: multi-hazard civil infrastructure resilience quantification; disaster planning and response, e.g. urban search and rescue, building and regional evacuation and sheltering, and crowd modeling; stochastic and dynamic network algorithms; mathematical modeling and optimization; transportation systems engineering; intermodal passenger and freight transport; real-time routing and fleet management; paratransit, ridesharing and bikeways; and collaborative and multi-objective decision-making.

Prior to joining Mason, Miller-Hooks served as a program director of the National Science Foundation (NSF) and on the faculties of the University of Maryland, Pennsylvania State University and Duke University. Now at Mason, Miller-Hooks holds the Bill and Eleanor Hazel Endowed Chair in Infrastructure Engineering in the Sid and Reva Dewberry Department of Civil, Environmental, and Infrastructure Engineering at George Mason University.
