Bio

My main research focuses on behavioral operations, studying issues of supply chain coordination, information sharing and human-algorithm interaction. I am also interested in sustainability and social responsibility in supply chains and have worked on topics related to global health supply chains and humanitarian logistics. In terms of research methodologies, I combine analytical modeling with experiments and secondary data.

Before joining Tilburg University, I worked as assistant professor at VU Amsterdam, and as research fellow (post-doc) at European Business School (Germany). I received my M. Eng. and PhD in Logistics and Supply Chain Management from MIT-Zaragoza Logistics Program (Spain). I also spent time at MIT, Harvard, University of Minnesota (USA) and University of Pompeu Fabra (Spain). Before joining academia, I worked as logistics and procurement specialist for the private sector and the Greek Ministry of Transport.
