Teaching interests

Teachers are central to higher-educational institutions' capacity to create and deliver value for parents, industries and the society at large, and I am passionate about working with my students to attain this end.

I draw on emerging operations and supply chain issues with pertinent research insights to inform my teaching while engaging students and ensuring that they own the learning process.

I currently co-teach topics in Applications of Operations and Supply Chain Management, and Supply Networks Management.
