Before joining the Nottingham University, Dr. Hezarkhani was a post-doctoral fellow and adjunct lecturer at Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands. Prior to that, he was a research associate and lecturer at Faculty of Business Administration at Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada. He was the first graduate from the PhD program in Operations and Information Management at Memorial University. Dr. Hezarkhani obtained his Bachelor and Master degrees in Industrial Engineering. His PhD thesis, which has been mainly motivated by his work experiences in oil and gas sectors, studies transshipment and resource sharing in decentralized supply chains. Dr. Hezarkhani is the recipient of 2010 Canadian Purchasing Research Foundation (CPRF) doctoral thesis scholarship.
