Contributions to the field include:

Transportation network-of-networks simulation, optimization, and analysis
Complex adaptive systems simulation and analysis
NNAS, airport and airspace simulation and performance analysis
Rare-event safety analysis for systems and devices
Aviation environment (noise and emissions)
Strategic planning and forecasting/industrial sector economics
Auctions and other allocation schemes
Portfolio analysis/costs-benefits analysis
Flightdeck design and human factors

Lance Sherry

Associate Professor, Systems Engineering and Operations Research department,  Volgenau School of Engineering at George Mason University
Director, Center for Air Transportation Systems Research (CATSR)

Dr. Sherry’s has pioneered research in data analytics and stochastic simulation of large complex adaptive systems such as the air transportation system, operations of airports, airlines and air traffic control, as well other network-of-network systems. These analyses are used widely for strategic planning, business development, cost/benefit analysis, and system productivity improvement.

Dr. Sherry has also conducted award wining work in human-computer interaction, operator training, and the design of autonomous and semi-autonomous systems (such as Unmanned Air Vehicles).
