Con­sulta­tion on Ap­point­ment

Back­ground

Jo­han­nes’ re­search in­terests in­clude the­or­et­ical as well as ap­plied aspects of sup­ply chain man­age­ment with a fo­cus on in­vent­ory man­age­ment, risk, fore­cast­ing, pri­cing, global sourcing, trans­port­a­tion and ware­hous­ing, and en­vir­on­mental sus­tain­ab­il­ity.

Whilst some of his re­search is highly the­or­et­ical in nature, seek­ing and en­cour­aging dia­logue and know­ledge trans­fer with prac­tice has opened a stream of prac­tice-­based re­search with a total volume in ex­cess of €150k. Com­pan­ies in­clude global play­ers such as Maersk ship­ping line, Brit­ish Amer­ican To­bacco, and Mondi, to name a few. 

Jo­han­nes cur­rently de­liv­ers mod­ules in our bach­elor and mas­ter pro­grammes as well as pro­fes­sional edu­ca­tion pro­grammes. He is strongly com­mit­ted to de­liv­er­ing learn­ing and teach­ing ex­cel­lence which, as he be­lieves, is an in­teg­ral part of his aca­demic role.

Re­search In­terests

  • De­mand and In­vent­ory Plan­ning

  • Global Sup­ply Chain Man­age­ment

  • Sup­ply Chain Risk and Un­cer­tain­ties
