Shi Chen receives meritorious service award from leading journal

Shi Chen, an assistant professor of operations management at the University of Washington Foster School of Business, has received the Meritorious Service Award from the journal Manufacturing & Service Operations Management.

Manufacturing & Service Operations Management is a quarterly peer-reviewed academic journal that is published by the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences. It is one of the “FT50” journals, covering every discipline, that Financial Times considers for its annual research productivity ranking. This research index (in which Foster currently stands at #7 in the world) is a component of its ranking of Global MBA programs (in which Foster currently stands at #25 in the U.S. and #1 for job placement).

Chen joined the Foster School faculty after completing his PhD at Stanford in 2013. His research investigates inventory management, supply chain-project management interface, socially responsible and sustainable supply chain management, pricing and capacity planning in the cloud computing industry.

His latest paper in Manufacturing & Service Operations Management (with Kamran Moinzadeh and Mohammad Arbabian) offers advice on the most efficient way to use cloud computing for firm expansion.
