Biography

Professor Andrew Davis is an assistant professor of operations, technology, and information management at the Johnson Graduate School of Management. His research focuses on procurement in supply chains, such as contracting, bargaining , and auctions, in B2B settings. Because these settings require managerial input in practice, Professor Davis employs a behavioral methodology when investigating these problems. In particular, he conducts controlled laboratory experiments with human participants to investigate how behavioral factors affect procurement decisions in supply chains. His research has been published in Management Science, Manufacturing & Service Operations Management, and Production and Operations Management. He serves on the editorial board of Production & Operations Management and is the president of the INFORMS Behavioral Operations Section.

Some of the awards that Professor Davis has received include the Wickham Skinner Early Career Accomplishments Award (3rd Place), the Best Reviewer Award from the Production and Operations Management Society, first runner-up in the Best Working Paper Award from the INFORMS Behavioral Operations Society, the Meritorious Service Award from Management Science (three times), and the Clifford H. Whitcomb Faculty Fellowship from the Johnson School at Cornell University. He was also named one of "The World's Best 40 Under 40 Business School Professors" by Poets and Quants.

Prior to joining Johnson in 2011, Professor Davis worked for C&S Wholesale Grocers, a $30 billion grocery distributor, in various supply chain roles. He earned a BA in economics from Colgate University, an MBA from the Pennsylvania State University, and a PhD in supply chain management also from the Pennsylvania State University.
