The Wisconsin School of Business Operations and Information Management Department is excited to welcome Robert “Bob” Batt to the faculty beginning in July 2013.
Batt is earning his Ph.D. in operations management from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. Before starting his doctoral studies, he was a manufacturing engineer at Hypertherm, Inc. and a research fellow at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College.
His work includes studies of the operations at hospital emergency rooms with a focus on financial consequences of efficient rooming and on service times for waiting patients.
Batt will teach courses in services operations for the Wisconsin School of Business.
