Research focuses on stochastic models for supply chain and health operations management. Specifically, research and consulting interests include coordination in decentralized supply chains, design and operational control of manufacturing systems, appointment scheduling systems, and revenue management in manufacturing and service industries.
The mission of SCORLAB is to be the premier laboratory for cutting edge research in the areas of supply chain management and operations research. Current projects include the study of advanced access systems, coordination in decentralized supply chains, manufacturing capacity revenue management, and air cargo revenue management.
