Theodore T. Allen, Ph.D. is an associate professor of Industrial and Systems Engineering at The Ohio State University. He is the author of over 60 refereed publications focusing on the intersection of optimization and experimentation. These include two textbooks published by Springer Verlag including a third edition textbook on engineering statistics. Dr. Allen is a fellow of ASQ. He is an area editor of Computers and Industrial Engineering (IF:3.5) and a past associate editor of the Journal of Manufacturing Systems (IF:3.6) and has been a reviewer and on the editorial board for numerous journals and organizations including Technometrics and the AIAA journal. Dr. Allen was a co-author on apparently the first optimal design paper for multi-fidelity experiments (Huang and Allen 2005), the first extension of efficient global optimization to both noisy and multi-fidelity cases (Huang, Allen, Notz, and Zheng 2006 – highly cited paper and Huang, Allen, Notz, and Miller 2006 – highly cited paper), and the first application of multi-fidelity optimization in the context of discrete event simulation (Schenk, Zheng, and Allen 2005). Dr. Allen is also the president and founder of the educational non-profit organization factSpread.
