Jeffery D. Weir is a Professor, Associate Department Head and Interim Director of the Center for Operational Analysis in the Department of Operational Sciences at the Air Force Institute of Technology. He teaches courses in decision analysis, risk analysis, and multi-objective optimization. A former officer in the United States Air Force, he has worked on a wide variety of projects ranging from scheduling and routing aircraft, determining the value of future intelligence information, assessing the impact of FAA regulation changes to passenger and aircrew safety, and mode selection for multi-modal multi-commodity distribution networks. He has received grants from the Defense Intelligence Agency, United States Transportation Command, Air Force Materiel Command, the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization, Air Force Research Laboratory and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, amongst others.

Dr. Weir is a member of the institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences, Military Operations Research Society and Institute of industrial Engineers.
