I am the Maurice F. Strong Career Development Professor and an Assistant Professor of Operations Management at MIT Sloan. I am affiliated with the Operations Management Group, the Operations Research Center and the Sustainability Initiative.

My research examines the design of operational strategies, technological innovations and algorithms to advance social and environmental impact in informal, first-mile and global supply chains. My most recent work focuses on improving the operations and transparency of informal supply chains, specifically smallholder supply chains and informal labor supply chains. Learn more here.
