Vincent G. Duffy is an associate professor of Industrial Engineering and Agricultural & Biological Engineering at Purdue University. His dissertation initially led to co-authored studies that outline an empirical test for mediation effects in implementing Total Quality Management. Dr. Duffy’s research in perception-based empirical model development in virtual and real environments has contributed to improved safety in design. Some of the research led to the development of a test bed that had virtual reality integrated with live motion capture and computerbased ergonomics analysis capabilities. Vincent was a Fulbright Senior Scholar in the Russian Federation in 2011-2012 and developed a course titled “Green Business, Innovation and Society” that was later taught at Purdue. Recently, he has been a reviewer for the National Science Foundation under their Smart Service Systems Design initiative. He received his PhD and MSIE degrees from Purdue University and BSME in Mechanical Engineering from NYU Engineering.
