Dr. Greis’s research explores how innovations in digital technology and new sources of data—from real-time operational data to social media—are enabling organizations to rethink how they design, produce and deliver their products and services to their customers. Her current work is focused on the application of machine learning and tolls of artificial intelligence to create “smart” manufacturing processes and “connected” products that help companies improve their manufacturing and supply chain operations.
Dr. Greis is also co-director of the NC State-Tsinghua Center for Logistics and Enterprise Development. Prior to joining NC State, Dr. Greis was director of the Center for Logistics and Digital Strategy at the Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise and Adjunct Professor of Operations at UNC’s Kenan-Flagler Business School, where she received the UNC-Tsinghua EMBA Award for Teaching Excellence.
She received her Ph.D., M.S.E. and M.A. degrees in engineering from Princeton University and her B.A. in mathematics from Brown University.
Dr. Greis has received a number of awards for her work from organizations such as the Decision Sciences Institute, ANBAR Management Intelligence, and the Production and Operations Management Society. She holds a patent for real-time prognostics and diagnostics for complex physical systems.
