Indiana University, Kelley School of Business, Bloomington
Professor Winston received his Ph.D. from Yale University in 1975. His research interests are in all applications of applied probability, including stochastic processes, game theory, and probabilistic dynamic programming. He is one of the foremost experts in spreadsheet modeling and applied probability. Professor Winston can bend Microsoft Excel to solve all kinds of problems—from ranking football teams to estimating a demand curve to determining which mix of players or products will yield the best results on the court or the biggest impact to the bottom line.
His work in numbers is in high demand with corporations and organizations as diverse as Cisco, U.S. Army, GM, Ford, Eli Lilly, Bristol Myers, Pfizer, WellPoint, eBay, Procter & Gamble, Microsoft, and the Dallas Mavericks. His book, Mathletics: How Gamblers, Managers, and Sports Enthusiasts Use Mathematics in Baseball, Basketball, and Football, largely draws on the statistics tracking and rating system he developed for Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks and a Kelley School alumnus.
