Gholamreza Amin joined the Faculty of Business in the University of New Brunswick at Saint John, in 2016. Prior to joining the University of New Brunswick, he taught at Sultan Qaboos University in Oman where he received the distinguished research award for his performance in research during the year 2012-2013. Dr. Amin has received his Ph.D. in Operations Research from Azad University (2003, Iran).

He has taught different undergraduate and graduate courses in Operations Research such as Management Science, Applied Optimization Methods, Quantitative Methods in Business, Operations Management, and Production and Operations Management.

He acts as an Editorial Board Member in the Elsevier journal, Heliyon, and the International Journal of Productivity Management and Assessment Technologies, IGI global. He also participated in the organizing and scientific committees of many international conferences and workshops including the IEEE Conference on Fuzzy Systems and Knowledge Discovery, 2009 in China, World Wide Web Conference 2016 in Canada, 2015 in Italy, 2014 in Korea, 2013 in Brazil, and 2012 in France.

His research interests include Performance Measurement and Management, Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA), Ordered Weighted Averaging (OWA) Operators, and Inverse Optimization.

Dr. Amin has published in several top international journals, including Operations Research, European Journal of Operational Research, Computers and Operations Research, Journal of the Operational Research Society, International Journal of Approximate Reasoning, and International Journal of Intelligent Systems among others.
