Andrea Genovese is a Professor of Logistics and Supply Chain Management at Sheffield University Management School (SUMS). He joined SUMS in February 2010, working first as a Research Associate, then as a Lecturer and as a Senior Lecturer.
Andrea holds a PhD in the area of Operational Research from University of Naples "Federico II" (Italy). His education also includes a MSc (with BSc) in Industrial Engineering from the same institution and a Master in Business Administration (MBA) at the Whittemore School of Business and Economics of University of New Hampshire (USA).
Prior to his PhD, he has worked as Logistics Central Planner for a MNE operating in the tyres industry.
His primary research interest lies in the development and application of decision support methodologies (based on both qualitative and quantitative paradigms) in order to solve complex problems in the field of Supply Chain Management, with a special emphasis on Environmental and Social Sustainability of Logistics and Production Systems.
He has published several papers in leading international journals (such as Omega, International Journal of Production Research, International Journal of Production Economics, Expert Systems with Applications, European Journal of Operational Research, International Journal of Operations and Production Management).
He has acted as a committee member of several international conferences (including EWGLA 2010, ISAHP 2011, IPSERA 2012, ISOLDE 2014, ISAHP 2016). He has been involved in several research projects funded by national and international bodies.
Andrea is also delivering training and consultancy activities within the Logistics and Supply Chain Management (LSCM) Research Centre at the University of Sheffield.
