In addition to her role in the Provost’s Office, Dr. Srour serves as the Academic Director for the Middle East Partnership Initiative, Tomorrow’s Leaders Graduate Program at LAU.

Beyond her passion for innovative teaching and learning, Dr. Srour’s research interests include interdisciplinary applications of mathematics and computer science to identify and leverage patterns in data. Her data-driven skills have been applied to topics spanning transportation management, construction management, human resource management, measurements of diversity, and co-created views of cultural heritage.  Her research appears in top-tier, peer-reviewed journals including Transportation Science, Journal of Construction Engineering and Management,  Journal of Business Research, International Journal of Social Research Methodology, Poetics, and Computers and Operations Research.

Dr. Srour is also a member of the Institute for Operations Research and Management Science (INFORMS) where she serves on an ad-hoc committee on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion within the Transportation Science and Logistics society.
