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.
