Associate Professor of Decisions, Operations, and Technology Management
With a research focus on supply chain management and operations management in knowledge-based services, Guillaume Roels characterizes the worst-case performance of supply chains with limited demand information and uncoordinated decision-making. His findings led to the development of principles for making robust supply chain decisions, such as contracting, capacity investment, capacity allocation and pricing. Roels has studied ways to improve productivity in knowledge-based services by properly designing incentive mechanisms or improving time management.
