Bio

In her research Dr. Stavrulaki aims to understand the strategic and operational implications of optimizing the supply chain as well as integrating the supply chain with other important functional areas such as marketing and new product development. She also investigates how sustainable and socially responsible supply chains can operate profitably. Her work spans both manufacturing and service organizations. Dr. Stavrulaki also holds a certificate in positive psychology and positive psychology coaching from Whole Being Institute. She is interested in exploring how positive psychology can be used to improve the well-being of individuals, employees and organizations, as well as to improve supply chain processes. Dr. Stavrulaki has published articles in many peer reviewed journals such as Management Science and the European Journal of Operational Research. She has also served as an area editor of IIE Transactions and has presented her work in many national and international conferences.
