Curriculum vitae ►


Sara is an Assistant Professor of Supply Chain Management at the Asper School of Business at the University of Manitoba. She earned her PhD in Business Administration from the Ivey Business School at Western University in June 2015. Prior to her doctoral studies, she earned an undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering and a master’s degree in Industrial Management. She also has more than eight years of professional work experience, as an engineer and a quality manager, in oil, gas, and petrochemical industries.

Sara’s research mainly focuses on two different aspects of sustainable operations management. Firstly, she looks into the intra-firm social and environmental approaches and how they can affect the firms’ triple bottom line, i.e. their economic, social, and environmental performance. Secondly, she explores the sustainability issues within supply chains from a risk management perspective and investigates the role of supply managers in this process.

From a methodological standpoint, Sara undertakes theory-based empirical research projects using surveys, experiments, and secondary data.
