My research is transdisciplinary, residing at the intersection of supply chain management, and digitalization. With over a decade of dedicated experience in researching topics with a practical application focus, I've consistently explored the realms of the closed-loop supply chain and its various related subjects. At the heart of my research agenda lies the exploration of blockchain technology's transformative potential in supply chains. My scholarly inquiries considered the complexities and challenges that surface during the integration of blockchain into supply chain processes. My work has found its place in reputable journals such as Business, Strategy and Environment, Resource, Conservation and Recycling, Journal of Cleaner Production, Renewable Energy, Soft Computing, International Journal Hydrogen Energy. In the rapidly evolving landscape of supply chain management and sustainability, I have carved a dynamic research path that encompasses diverse yet interconnected areas of significance. My academic journey is underscored by a relentless pursuit of knowledge, driven by a commitment to making substantive contributions to both the theoretical and practical dimensions of these fields.

My teaching portfolio spans diverse courses, including Materials Management in Supply Chains, Prescriptive Analytics, Supply Chain Management, Operations Management, Engineering Economy, Operations Research, Statistical Quality Control, and specialized topics in the field. This breadth mirrors my deep-seated belief that education is an ongoing process, catalyzing growth within both students and educators. In my teaching, I employ dynamic engagement methods and modern technologies to create enriching learning experiences. Recognizing the evolving nature of education, I integrate some of the latest teaching tools, including virtual learning environments and interactive software, into my courses. These tools create a collaborative learning environment, mirroring real-world scenarios.
