Shmuel Oren awarded Berkeley Citation


IEOR professor of the graduate school Shmuel Oren has just been awarded the Berkeley Citation by Chancellor Carol Christ.  The Citation is one of the University of California, Berkeley’s highest awards, and is reserved for individuals “whose contributions go beyond the call of duty and whose achievements exceed the standards of excellence in their fields.”

“He is richly deserving of this recognition,” says Chancellor Christ.

Oren will join  a group of select individuals whose outsized contributions have helped UC Berkeley become known as an institution of excellence.

Professor Oren recently retired his role as professor in IEOR and now serves as a professor of the graduate school. In 2016, he was inducted into the National Academy of Engineering for his contributions ‘to the integration of decisions and cooperative market mechanisms for adaptive multisource electrical power systems.’ (You can read more about Shmuel’s distinguished career in our interview here.)
