Hi, I'm Anna Errore,

I'm a PhD in Industrial Engineering, currently finishing up my dissertation for my second PhD in Supply Chain and Operations at the Carlson School of Management , University of Minnesota.

My research broadly sits at the intersection of Statistics, Management Science and Engineering.

Specifically, I work on theoretical methodology developments for applications of advanced statistical tools for quality improvement, operations management, marketing and other areas of business management.

My research has been devoted to optimal experimental design theory and applications.

In my first dissertation in Industrial Engineering, I tailored experimental design construction to tools mostly related to quality management.

In my second dissertation in Supply Chain and Operations - with a minor in Statistics - I’m working on experimental design tools for discrete choice applications (common both in marketing and quality improvement) and auction theory.
