Biography: 

Javad Nasiry is an associate professor of Operations Management at McGill Desautels Faculty of Management where he joined in 2019.  He teaches courses on statistics, decision analytics, and operations management at the undergraduate and graduate levels including the MBA and MMA (Master of Management in Analytics) programs. 

His main research interests are in behavioral operations, supply chain management, sustainability, retail operations, operations-marketing interface, and empirical operations-finance interface.  His work in behavioral operations elaborates on whether and how psychological phenomena such as reference effects may affect aggregate variables (e.g., market demand) and their implications on firms' operational policies especially in pricing, inventory, and assortment.  He employs both analytical and experimental research methods to explore the related research questions.  His research in sustainable operations focuses on the environmental consequences of new business models in apparel, renewable energy, and agriculture industries.

Prior to joining McGill, he was an associate professor of operations management in the School of Business and Management at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) where he joined in 2010.  He taught courses on operations management and pricing and revenue management at the undergraduate and graduate levels including the MBA program.
