personal information


As a Chaired Professor in Operations Management, I have undertaken important teaching, research and administrative roles.

I have taught at undergraduate, masters and MBA levels, as well as in executive education in places like Brazil, The Netherlands, The UK and the UEA. I am also experienced creator of content, some of which are now being used in Universities in Brazil, The UK, Singapore and the US. With respect to my research, over the past years I have published in leading European and American Journals in the fields of Operations Management, Operations Research and Industrial Ecology, e.g. Production and Operations Management, Journal of Operations Management and the European Journal of Operational Research.

In Manchester, I worked as a liaison, facilitating the cooperation between the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering (MACE) and Universities in Brazil. I have also coordinated the student exchange for the Bath School of Management. I also served as the academic director for the masters in Supply Chain and Project Management.

Research interests

Over the past ten years I have dedicated my time to the study of sustainable and closed-loop supply chains. More recently, I have diversified my research portfolio to include topics such as sociably responsible supply chains.
