I am an Assistant Professor in Operations Management at Durham University Business School. I use stochastic models to study how to make management decisions in presence of risks with applications in manufacturing systems and supply chains. In particular, I am interested in analysing how the adoption of information technologies could help companies in offering value-added services while mitigating operational risks. My research has been funded by the European FP7, the Technology Strategy Board and the White Rose Consortium.
Before joining Durham University, I was a Lecturer at Hull University Business School and its Logistics Institute. Prior to that, I worked as a project manager for a market research company. I held visiting positions at the University of California, Los Angeles and at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. I received a BEng in Industrial Engineering and an MSc and a PhD, both in Operations and Supply Chain Management, from Politecnico di Milano, Italy.
I’m the Academic Director of the MSc in Business Analytics and the Leader of the Technology Pathway for the Full-time MBA programme. I currently teach MBA courses on Business Analytics, Management Decision Making, and Project Management.
