Description

Arnold Barnett's research specialty is applied mathematical modeling with a focus on problems of health and safety. His early work on homicide was presented to President Gerald Ford at the White House, and his analysis of U.S. casualties in Vietnam was the subject of a column by William F. Buckley. He has received the President's Award and the Expository Writing Award from INFORMS in 1996 and in 2001, and is a Fellow of INFORMS. Barnett has been called "the nation's leading expert" on aviation safety, and in 2002 received the President's Citation from the Flight Safety Foundation for "truly outstanding contributions on behalf of safety." He has written op-ed pieces for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Boston Globe, and USA Today. He has been honored by students at MIT Sloan for outstanding teaching on ten occasions.
