Javier Salmerón

Associate Professor of Operations Research
Ph.D., Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Spain), 1998

Dr. Salmerón is an associate professor in the Operations Research Department at the Naval Postgraduate School. His research focuses in the area of mathematical modeling and optimization, and its applications in civilian and military problems. This has been published in open, peer-reviewed journals. He also teaches several graduate courses in optimization and operations management, and advises thesis students. Before his time with NPS, Dr. Salmerón worked for Spanish electric utility Iberdrola. He was also part-time adjunct professor in the Department of Statistics and Operations Research at the Statistics School of Complutense University of Madrid. In 2009, he and other department colleagues received the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Homeland Security Award, and in 2014 he and other department colleagues and students received the Military of Operations Research Society Richard H. Barchi Prize.  He also received the Wayne E. Meyer Award for teaching excellence in Systems Engineering in 2012 and 2014. He holds SCI clearance.
