Wilsey Professor of Operations Research and Financial Engineering, participated in a panel discussion with other faculty members on 'Princeton Today: Leading Research and Education.' Massey was praised for his role as a mentor to generations of Princeton students. ... The two-day conference, titled 'Leading Change in Science and Technology: A Princeton Engineering Conference for Black Alumni,' brings together black leaders in science and technology, as well as public policy and business. The event, which was set to continue on Saturday, presents a forum for alumni to learn about research and education in Princeton's School of Engineering and Applied Science and to share ideas about leadership, entrepreneurship and best practices for increasing diversity in the scientific and engineering fields."
