Dr. Xiao Huang is a Professor at the John Molson School of Business, Concordia University. Her research focuses on strategic interactions among supply chain members as well as data-driven and behavioural-driven decision makings in supply chains. Specifically, she applies game theory, stochastic modelling and data analysis in analyzing issues related to the competition and cooperation in supply chains, supply chain risk management, pricing and product design, on both the strategic and the operational ends of the matters. Her research tackles interface problems between operations and other business functions such as marketing, finance and management. Prof. Huang received her Ph.D. in Operations Management from the Marshall School of Business, University of Southern California in 2009, M.Sc. in Mathematical Finance from the University of Southern California in 2008, and B.E. in Electronic Engineering from Tsinghua University in 2004.
