Her tools are being used by the US and Swiss governments both to encourage manufacturing and to provide strategic direction for innovation. She serves as Department Editor for the Journal of Operations Management, where she is also guest editing a special issue. She received her doctorate from the Harvard Business School. She is currently developing a specialization for Coursera on supply-chain analytics for innovative SMEs.
