I am a Professor of Supply Chain and Operations at the Carlson School of Management, University of Minnesota. My current research interests derive from contemporary issues in the areas of innovation, public sector operations, public health supply chains, and emerging markets. My research has been published in premier academic journals such as Management Science, Manufacturing & Service Operations Management, Production & Operations Management, and the Journal of Operations Management.
I currently serve as the founding Department Editor of the Innovation and Project Management department at the Journal of Operations Management. In addition, I also serve as a Senior Editor for Production and Operations Management and a Department Editor in the Product and Process Innovation department at the Decision Sciences Journal. Beyond my editorial responsibilities, I routinely serve as a reviewer for Management Science, Manufacturing & Service Operations Management, and Production and Operations Management.
I have worked with and advised companies on a range of supply chain issues (relating to sourcing, production, distribution, and analytics). These companies include Best Buy, Bühler Industries, Cafe Imports, Emerson Electric, General Mills, Heraeus, Len Busch Roses, Lutron Electronics, Medtronic, Polaris, Seeonic, Stratasys, Tokyo Electron, and Winnebago Industries.
On the pedagogical front, I have designed and taught Executive MBA, MBA/Masters level and Undergraduate courses in Supply Chain and Operations, Strategic Sourcing, Project Management, Technology Management, and Business Statistics.
