Julie S. Ivy, PhD
In August 2007, Dr. Julie Ivy joined the faculty of North Carolina State University as an assistant professor in the Edward P. Fitts Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering and the Fits Fellow in Health Systems Engineering. Prior to coming to North Carolina, she was assistant professor of operations and management science in the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan She received her BS and PhD from the University of Michigan and her MS from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
While the field of industrial and systems engineering has its roots in manufacturing, Dr. Ivy’s research has explored using mathematical modeling for health care applications, including the cost-effectiveness of mammography screening and dynamic breast cancer screening policy development. The focus of her research is decision making under conditions of uncertainty with the objective of improving the decision quality. For her NCPERRC project, she leads a team with faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates working together to study the NC HAN.
