My program of research focuses on humanitarian supply chains and supply chain resilience. In my research, I adopt mixed methods approach including experimental design, advanced statistical methods, and case studies. I am a Co-Investigator on a grant that evaluates the potential leverage investments in logistics infrastructure to increase economic development for the State of Florida. I developed an undergraduate supply chain course for which I was awarded the prestigious 2019 Provost’s Award for Outstanding Teaching by a graduate student. In addition, I was invited as a guest lecturer at Rutgers University in other courses including procurement and global sourcing (graduate level), supply chain security and risk management (undergraduate level), and supply chain procurement for fashion (undergraduate level). Prior to joining the doctoral program, I worked as a senior supply chain analysist both in the US and overseas.
