Firmly committed to outreach to the K-12 educational community, Ameila Regan has participated as an instructor in the UCI/Santa Ana Teachers institute and the COSMOS summer program for high school teachers. She was previously the faculty director for the UCI/Anaheim School District Teachers as Scholars program and is currently faculty director of a FOCUS project aimed at bringing computer science skills to high school teachers. She is the current President of the INFORMS Forum for Women in Operations Research and Management Science.

Regan’s primary research interests are in the area of network optimization and transportation logistics. Much of her work has been concerned with developing dynamic dispatching algorithms for trucking, intermodal and local pickup and delivery fleet operations, as well as performing more theoretical analysis of dynamic and stochastic variants of the traveling salesman and other combinatorial optimization problems.

Other recent research has involved mathematical modeling of inventory and supply chain systems, the application of data mining tools to the analysis of large scale, multi-source traffic accident data, and studies of patterns of information technology adoption and use in the freight transportation industries. Her research has been supported by the National Science Foundation, Caltrans, the Transportation Research Board, the University of California Transportation Centers and JB Hunt Transportation, Inc.

Regan earned an undergraduate degree in Systems Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania in 1987, an MS in Applied Mathematics from the Johns Hopkins University in 1990 and an MSE and Ph.D. in Civil (Transportation Systems) Engineering from the University of Texas (1995, 1997).

Prior to starting at the University of Texas, she worked as a software engineer and operations research analyst with the Association of American Railroads and United Parcel Service.
