INFORMS, the premier professional society for operations research, industrial engineering and optimization, recognized Hicks for “outstanding leadership in diversity issues and for fundamental contributions to the theory and practice of discrete optimization.” He was one of 12 researchers in the 2020 class of fellows.

Hicks earned his master’s and doctoral degrees in computational and applied mathematics from Rice in 2000 and joined Rice’s faculty in 2007 following six years on the faculty at Texas A&M University. He has served as faculty advisor to Rice President David Leebron since 2016. His research interests include combinatorial optimization, integer programming, graph theory and matroid theory, with applications in social networks, cancer treatment and network design.在家里跟家公做那事 最新好看的原创军事小说 E道阅读网 在家里跟家公做那事 最新好看的原创军事小说 E道阅读网 ,香菇影视全文免费阅读 香菇影视 E道阅读网 香菇影视全文免费阅读 香菇影视 E道阅读网 ,逆爱 再爱我一次全文免费阅读 逆爱 再爱我一次 E道阅读网 逆爱 再爱我一次全文免费阅读 逆爱 再爱我一次 E道阅读网

Hicks, together with CAAM’s Andrew Schaefer and Joseph Huchette and Houston Methodist Hospital’s Nicole Fontenot, won a grant from Rice’s COVID-19 Research Fund in May to use optimization models to better plan nursing schedules during times of uncertainty, when a hospital’s needs are highly variable.

Hicks founded the Minority Issues Forum at INFORMS and won the 2005 Optimization Prize for Young Researchers within the INFORMS Optimization Society, the 2010 INFORMS Forum Moving Spirit Award and the 2015 Presidential Mentoring Award from Rice.

He is a member of the Mathematical Optimization Society, the National Association of Mathematicians, the American Mathematical Society, the Society for Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science, and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.
