Faculty: Wayne Wakeland

Wayne WakelandIn 1973, Wayne Wakeland was granted a B.S. in Engineering and Master of Engineering in from Harvey Mudd College. In 1977 he was granted a Ph.D. in Systems Science from PSU. His dissertation was entitled, "CHANCE: a Probabilistic Model for Energy Resource Planning."

In 1978, Wayne became an adjunct member of the core faculty of the Systems Science Ph.D. program, when he began teaching a sequence of courses on modeling and simulation. This sequence evolved considerably over the years (see "course information" below). In 2000, he became an Associate Professor of Systems Science.

In parallel with the above teaching activity, from 1978 to 2000, Wayne held managerial positions in information systems or manufacturing at local high tech firms (Tektronix, Photon Kinetics, Magni Systems, Epson, and Leupold & Stevens). In 2000, he reduced his industry job to part-time...to allow more time for teaching.

Research Interests

My research interests include ecological economics and sustainability, health systems policy, biomedical dynamics, the software development process, criminal justice systems, supply chain management, organizational dynamics and systems thinking, simulation & optimization methods, and teaching. The simulation languages I use include Vensim, Netlogo, Arena, Extend, ProModel, and STELLA.
