Biography
Jessye Talley is a professor at Morgan State University within the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering. She is also the Co-Founder of Sisters Scholars. This group is a support for PhD students going through their various degree programs. My research allows me to solve problems using mathematical models and simulations using computers. Some of my projects include: 1. A model that will determine the best amount of people and resources to respond to the Aids to Navigation on the waterways after a hurricane. 2. Helping to develop a simulation to determine seaport productivity if disruptions or threats arise. 3. Developing model to calculate consumers sickness and determine strategies to prevent from food contamination events. Outside of engineering I love to do different sewing projects, crocheting, movies and traveling. I am thankful to have the opportunity to encourage and be an example to girls to pursue STEM careers. I look forward to any questions you may have about engineering or life. Know that you can do anything you put your mind to.
