Dr. Gary J. Summers, President of Pipeline Physics

Dr. Gary Summers is President and Founder of Pipeline Physics LLC, a consulting boutique that provides research, education and consulting for project portfolio management (PPM) and the management of pharmaceutical pipelines.

Dr. Summers develops decisions methods that manage uncertainty well. These methods augment the predict-then-act, forecasting approach of decision analysis and portfolio optimization with robust and flexible decision methods. In situations that are only partially understood, contain unknown-unknowns, and more generally, produce surprises, robust, flexible decision methods perform best.

Advances in decision theory are creating this field, and Dr. Summers is pioneering their application to PPM and pharmaceutical pipelines. His research is producing:
