Today Dr. Paul Kantor (Rutgers and now UW ISYE) and I gave a University of Wisconsin-Madison ISYE department seminar on homeland security and operations research. I talked about passenger screening in the aftermath of 9/11 in a presentation without equations.

I had just started a PhD program and started to work with Sheldon Jacobson. Fourteen years later, I can conclude that we will always have homeland security challenges, and we will always have some challenges. Here are the slides from my presentation.
