Dr. Javier Calvo-Amodio's research focus is on developing fundamental understanding of how to integrate systems science into industrial and systems engineering research and practice to enable better engineering of continuous process improvement organizational cultures. His research group, Change and Reliable Systems Engineering and Management (CaRSEM), works with Oregon’s industry, state agencies, the National Science Foundation, and other professional societies to determine systemic principles that guide the design, assimilation, and management of the systems engineering process, as well as continuous process improvement approaches such as Lean and Six Sigma.
Javier Calvo-Amodio is an associate professor of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering at Oregon State University, where he directs the Change and Reliable Systems Engineering and Management Research Group (CaRSEM). He received his Ph.D. in Systems and Engineering Management from Texas Tech University, his MS in Business Management from the University of Hull in the United Kingdom, and his B.S. in Industrial and Systems Engineering from Tecnológico de Monterrey in Mexico.
He has been at OSU since 2012.
