Research Interests

Supply Chain Innovation

Development and implementation of robust and efficient techniques for manufacturing and logistics systems. In particular, areas such as supply chain, network design, inventory models, pricing and procurement strategies, as well as production scheduling. I am also interested in the implementation of advanced algorithms in Decision Support Systems to improve supply chain performance. Finally, I have been involved in developing innovative teaching tools. For an example, please check our Web Based Beer Game and the MIT Procurement Portal Game
