He joined Lally in 2022 from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, where he was a visiting assistant professor at Gies College of Business. In addition, he obtained an M.Phil. in operations management from New York University, and a bachelor’s (industrial engineering) and master’s (operations management) degree from the University of Chile. 

Dr. Souyris’ research broadly addresses issues related to the challenges and the means of achieving environmental and human sustainability from an operations management perspective, combining data-driven optimization, machine learning and econometrics. His work includes applying decomposition and constraint programming methods to optimize dispatching decisions (in the European Journal of Operations Research) and robust optimization-based decision modeling under uncertainty in service times (in Optimization Letters). Moreover, his work in applying operations research tools in soccer leagues (in the INFORMS Journal on Applied Analytics) was a finalist for the prestigious Franz Edelman Award. At the same time, a second paper in the same journal was a finalist for the EURO Excellence in Practice Award. He also received the 2022 INFORMS Revenue Management and Pricing Practice Award for his paper “Scheduling Advertising on Cable Television” (in Operations Research).
