Bio

Erick (Zhaolin) Li received a Ph.D. in Business Administration from The Pennsylvania State University, a Master of Commerce in Accounting from The University of New South Wales, and a Bachelor of Engineering in Materials Science & Industrial Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Dr. Li has been with The University of Sydney Business School since January 2009. Before moving to Sydney, he had worked in Ernst & Young LLP, Southern Arkansas University, and City University of Hong Kong.

His research interests spans two areas of interest: supply chain management (SCM) and the interfaces between operations management (OM) and other areas. His research has considered the impact of technology developments, supply interruptions, consumer preferences, asymmetric information, equity-based incentives, and chain-to-chain competition on the firm's operational strategies. His research used a variety of techniques, including multidimensional mechanism designs, multidimensional signalling games, and calculus of variations. He has published research articles in Decision Sciences, Management Science, and Production & Operations Management.
