Jie’s research examines global supply chains with special interests in managing collaborative innovation, risk and uncertainty, and inter-firm relationships. In particular, Jie is interested in behavioural and cross-cultural studies; she aspires to understand how human factors interplay in supply chain dynamics, and how cultural differences influence on global supply chains. Her research is published in top journals such as Production and Operations Management and International Journal of Production Research.
