Dr. Manabu Sugiyama of Gunma University in Japan visits with Dr. Daniel Lopez, president of New Mexico Tech.
Dr. Sugiyama is working on Data Envelopment Analysis and its applications in economics and business. Dr. Sugiyama is working with Tech professor Dr. Toshi Sueyoshi, who is an internationally known scholar in business and economics research.
Tech President Dr. Daniel H. Lopez said this collaboration has proved to be quite successful so far for both institutions.
“When we find mutually beneficial partnerships – even with foreign universities – we have a deep interest in forming lasting relationships,” Dr. Lopez said. “We see this as a great opportunity to combine forces and do ground-breaking research together.”
Dr. Peter Anselmo, chair of the Engineering Management Department, said the collaboration between Sugiyama and Sueyoshi during the three months has successfully produced two research articles in top-level journals, particularly the paper in Energy Economics. Anselmo said this sort of research exchange benefits both institutions. He hopes to continue to forge strong relations and enhance the existing research opportunities for Tech and
Along with Dr. Mika Goto, they will soon publish the paper, “Data Envelopment Analysis Window Analysis for Environmental Assessment in a Dynamic Time Shift: Performance Assessment of U.S. Coal-fired Power Plants.” This research will be published in Energy Economics.
The second paper by Sugiyama and Sueyoshi is “Finding a Common Weight Vector of Data Envelopment Analysis Based on Bargaining Game.” That paper will be published in Studies in Engineering and Technology.
