Con­sulta­tion on Ap­point­ment


Claire joined the In­sti­tute for Pro­duc­tion Man­age­ment at WU in 2016 as re­search and teach­ing as­so­ci­ate. Prior to this, she worked in sup­ply chain op­er­a­tion and con­sultancy in dif­fer­ent coun­tries.  She holds a mas­ter’s de­gree in sup­ply chain man­age­ment from Cran­field Uni­versity in England and a bach­elor’s de­gree in quant­it­at­ive fin­ance from Na­tional Tsing Hua Uni­versity in Taiwan. Her work in con­sultancy and op­er­a­tion re­volved around dis­tri­bu­tion net­work design, in­vent­ory man­age­ment, and op­er­a­tion pro­cess map­ping and re-en­gin­eer­ing. Due to her pre­vi­ous work and quant­it­at­ive back­ground, her re­search in­terests are also in the areas of sup­ply chain plan­ning, data ana­lyt­ics in sup­ply chain, sup­ply chain net­work design, par­tic­u­larly with fo­cus on quant­it­at­ive ap­proaches.
