Welcome to my website.

I am an Assistant Professor in the Operations and Decision Sciences area at the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics at Wilfrid Laurier University. Before this I did a postdoc at the University of Chicago and before that I completed my PhD at the University of Toronto.

In the ODS area we study how businesses operate. Largely, my research has dealt with what happens to businesses and markets when production and delivery capacity can’t be changed quickly. For instance, how should an airline set ticket prices when they have already committed to flying a particular route and what happens to an electricity market when a transmission link is at capacity.

Officially my research interests are as follows:

  • Pricing and contract theory in operations management
  • Structural estimation of dynamic decision models
  • Applications in services, energy markets, corporate finance, operations

Here is an accessible summary of one of my latest papers.

Are you a student?

If you are interested in pursuing a research degree in business analytics, operations or supply chain management please let me know! At LSBE we offer MSc and PhD degrees.

In particular, I am currently looking for students with quantitative backgrounds (e.g. math/CS/engineering/OR/economics …)  to work on projects on:

  • Analysis of energy markets,
  • Analysis of medical referral networks.
