Cornell Directory Entry


Vince Slaugh is an assistant professor at the Cornell Peter and Stephanie Nolan School of Hotel Administration. He received his PhD in operations management from the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University and joined the Nolan School faculty in July 2016, after spending one year as a visiting faculty member in supply chain management at Penn State University's Smeal College of Business.

In his research, Slaugh focuses on the optimal design of service systems, especially workforce management for labor-intensive, care-oriented operations. Methodologically, he uses stochastic models to both develop high-level managerial insights and inform tactical choices. Industry collaborations in three rich application domains drive his research: nursing home staffing, hotel housekeeping operations, and child welfare systems. Each of these three industries touch on central service design questions for hundreds of thousands of workers or caregivers in the United States and even more hotel guests, nursing home residents, and children in foster care. His work appears in Manufacturing and Service Operations Management, Production and Operations Management, and Interfaces.

Slaugh holds a BS and MS in industrial engineering and a BA in history from Penn State University.
