On Sunday, Sri Talluri, Hoagland Metzler Endowed Professor and professor of supply chain management, was honored and designated as a Fellow by the Decision Sciences Institute.

With this designation, Talluri joins a prestigious group of 116 fellows in the DSI’s 50-year history to be chosen worldwide from universities including Duke University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Harvard University, Indiana University, Michigan State University, Ohio State University, Purdue University, Stanford University, University of California–Los Angeles, University of Michigan, University of Minnesota, University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill, University of Pennsylvania, University of Texas at Austin and Yale University.

Talluri was officially recognized during the 2019 DSI Annual Conference, held in New Orleans. “I am really humbled and honored to be selected as a DSI Fellow,” he said. “It is such a great feeling to be a part of this select group of highly accomplished scholars. I sincerely would like to thank my mentors in the broader academic community for all their support over the years that made this possible.”

Fellows of the DSI are recognized for their exceptional career contributions in the field of decision sciences, including high-quality publications, research awards, citation counts, editorial positions, keynote speeches at conferences and invitations by other universities to present research through seminars, workshops and events.

“Professor Talluri’s impact on the field is evident from numerous research awards, almost 10,000 citations, and ranking in the top 1% of researchers worldwide in the area of operations management,” Professor and President of DSI Janet Hartley shared.

In addition, fellows are selected for their active involvement with the DSI’s activities that go above and beyond the norm, including conference leadership, committee involvement and DSI board membership. “He is not only an outstanding scholar but he also volunteers his time to provide service to the profession,” Hartley said. “He exemplifies the qualities of a DSI Fellow.”

Talluri has been a member of the DSI for more than 23 years and has spent this time growing his professional network around the world and making lasting connections.

“During this time, I was fortunate to have been actively involved with the DSI and other professional organizations through scholarly publications, editorial service to journals, chairing the 2016 DSI National Conference and serving on the Board of Directors and other committees,” he said. “These activities provided many opportunities for me to make an impact at the international level through invited visits to several countries that fostered research collaborations.”
