Research Interests and Awards

Dr. Zhuang's long-term research goal is to integrate operations research, big data analytics, game theory, and decision analysis to improve mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery for natural and man-made disasters. Other areas of interest include applications to health care, sports, transportation, supply chain management, sustainability, and architecture.

Dr. Zhuang's research has been supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through the National Center for Risk and Economic Analysis of Terrorism Events (CREATE) and the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START), by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) through the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and Argonne National Laboratory (ANL), by the U.S. Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) through the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), and by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
Dr. Zhuang is a recipient of 2017 Koopman Prize from the INFORMS’ Military Applications Society for the outstanding publication in military operations research in 2016. Dr. Zhuang is a recipient of 2014 MOR Journal Award for the best paper published in 2013 in the journal Military Operations Research. Dr. Zhuang is a recipient of the UB's Exceptional Scholar--Young Investigator Award for 2013. Dr. Zhuang is also a fellow of the 2011 U.S. Air Force Summer Faculty Fellowship Program (AF SFFP), sponsored by the AFOSR, and a fellow of the 2009-2010 Next Generation of Hazards and Disasters Researchers Program, sponsored by the NSF.
Dr. Zhuang dedicates to mentoring high school, undergraduate, and graduate students in research. Dr. Zhuang's mentoring effort has been recognized by the 2008 Graduate Student Mentor Award from University of Wisconsin-Madison, and the 2012 President Emeritus and Mrs. Martin Meyerson Award for Distinguished Teaching and Mentoring from University at Buffalo (see the right for a poster displayed in Capen Hall, UB Admissions Office; Enlarge).
