Prof. Dr. Laura Turrini

Junior Professor of Operations Management

EBS Business School, Institute for Supply Chain Management (ISCM), Oestrich-Winkel, Germany


We focus on epidemics response supply chains and use system dynamics to model the impact of the logistics distribution structure on programs efficiency and effectiveness. We derive valuable insights for humanitarian operation managers. We use real data from the Ebola response to validate our model.
