Associate Professor, Decision Sciences

Theresa Roeder

Theresa Roeder joined the department of Decision Sciences in 2005, after receiving her Ph.D. from UC Berkeley in 2004.

Her research is primarily in the field of discrete-event computer simulation, where she has worked extensively with the semiconductor industry. There, the focus is on investigating alternate approaches to simulation that would reduce the run times and/or development times.

Theresa is originally from Germany, and moved to California in 1999 after a five-year stint at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH. She is a happy member of the Oakland Symphony Chorus, on whose board she also serves.
