Jorge Luis Romeu, Professor and Researcher redball

Jorge Luis Romeu is an Academic, a Researcher and an International Educator. He is a Senior Specialist in the Fulbright Specialist Program, an Emeritus Faculty of SUNY and an Adjunct Professor of Quality Engineering, Industrial Statistics and Operations Research, with the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Syracuse University, where he teaches graduate industrial statistics, and quality engineering courses. Romeu was, from 2003 to 2019, a Syracuse University Research Professor, where he wrote many proposals to NSF and other organizations, and obtained a research assignment (2007-2008) with the Rome Air Force Research Lab, working in Design of Experiments.

Romeu was, from 1985 to 1998, an Associate Professor of Statistics and Computers, with the Mathematics Department of SUNY Cortland, retiring in December of 1998. In 2011-2012 Romeu also worked as Sponsored Research Specialist for the SUNY Institute of Technology (SUNYIT, renamed SUNY Polytechnic Institute), in Utica NY. There he taught, from 2012 to 2017, graduate and undergraduate optimization modeling courses.

Before and after working as a SUNY Cortland faculty, Romeu was (1982-85 and 1998-2006), at its Rome NY Campus, a Senior Research Engineer with IITRI, the Illinois Institute of Technology Research Institute, and its successor, ALION Sciences. There, he worked as senior researcher and statistician for the Reliability Analysis Center (RAC/RIAC), the Data and Analysis Center for Software (DACS), and the Advanced Materials Analysis Center (AMPTIAC), where he honed his quality and reliability expertise. Romeu continued working as statistician in these IAC Centers, under the different organizations that managed them. It was at the RAC, DACS, and AMPTIAC, that his technical tutorials were written. These IACs tutorials are currently consolidated into the DSIAC data base.

Romeu is also an independent industrial statistics, quality and reliability Consultant, and teaches international short courses for practicing engineers. From 2007 to 2015, Romeu was a Senior Science Advisor with QSI, a consulting group that operated the Reliability Information Analysis Center/RAC, which is currently part of the Defense Systems Information and Analysis Center (DSIAC).

Romeu is also involved in International Education. He created and directs the Juarez-Lincoln-Marti and its Quality, Reliability & Continuous Improvement Inst. Web Page: QR&CII, two International Education Projects. He has been a Speaker Specialist for the Fulbright Roster Program since 2003, having developed assignments in Xalapa, Mexico (2003), Santo Domingo, DR (twice in 2004) and Quito, Ecuador (2007). Romeu is also a writer and Journalist, involved in Cuban Affairs and in Freemasonry.

Romeu holds MS and Ph.D. degrees in Operations Research from Syracuse University (1982 and 1991), and a Mathematical Statistics degree from the University of Havana, Cuba (1973). Romeu is a Chartered Statistician Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society (RSS), a Fellow of the Institute of Statisticians (IOS), and a Full Member of the Operations Research Society of America (ORSA). He is a member of the American Statistical Association (ASA), and a Senior Member of the American Society for Quality (ASQ), past Chair of its Syracuse Section, and currently Director of Region II (Upstate New York and Pennsylvania).

Romeu holds ASQ Quality and Reliability certifications, and the RSS and IOS professional statistician accreditations. A selection of his technical papers can also be found in the Web.
