Ching-Chung Kuo's main research interest is in mathematical modeling and solution of problems in supply chain management. Holding a Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences from Northwestern University, he teaches classes in operations management and related areas at the undergraduate and graduate levels. He recently received the Best Paper Award from the 2013 World Congress of the International Management Development Association and co-received the Best Research Paper Award from the 2012 International Conference on Operations and Supply Chain Management. Among his latest publications are: Ojha, D., White, R. E., Rogers, P., & Kuo, C.-C. (2015).
