Welcome to my SelectedWorks site! I am a logistics and supply chain management researcher currently working at the University of Rhode Island's College of Business. My research interests include role of trust in supply chain management, humanitarian logistics and transportation safety. I earned my Ph.D. in Logistics and Supply Chain Management from the University of Maryland's Smith School of Business and master's degree in Electrical Engineering from Colorado State University. Also do I hold a Graduate Diploma in Purchasing and Supply from the CIPS Institute in the UK. Prior to joining URI in Fall 2011, I worked as a Logistics Systems Analyst at the United Nations for 3 years and as an Applications Developer at the National Research Institute of Electronics and Cryptology for 1.5 years. My academic teaching experience includes lecturing logistics and supply chain management, operations management and information technologies courses in the US, Kyrgyzstan and Turkey. As an active member of the supply chain management research community, my articles have been published or under review at such journals as Information Systems Research (ISR), Transportation Research Part E: Logistics and Transportation Review (TR-E), Journal of Business Logistics (JBL). Also, do I regularly contribute to the profession by reviewing manuscripts for operations and supply chain journals, such as Journal of Humanitarian Logistics and Supply Chain Management (JHLSCM), Transportation Journal (TJ) and Production and Operations Management (POM) Journal.
