Research Specialities

  • Electronics take-back legislation
  • Supply chain optimization subject to environmental sustainability constraints
  • Closed-loop supply chain management

One of my two major research streams is on environmentally-sustainable supply chain management. In the last decade, sustainability has attracted a lot of attention both from academics and practitioners in the supply chain domain. I expect to see increasingly more research being conducted in this area and I plan to continue my research on this topic.
