Professor Andrew Davis is an associate professor of operations, technology, and information management and the director of the Business Simulation Lab 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 as an Associate Editor for Management Science and a Senior Editor for Production & Operations Management and is a former president of the INFORMS Behavioral Operations Section.
Some of the awards that Professor Davis has received include third place in the Wickham Skinner Early Career Accomplishments Award, the Best Reviewer Award from the Production and Operations Management Society, the Best Behavioral Operations Management Working Paper from INFORMS, a finalist for the Best Public Operations Research Paper from INFORMS, the Distinguished Service Award and Meritorious Service Award from Management Science (three times), and the Clifford H. Whitcomb Faculty Fellowship and Half Century Fellowship from the Johnson School at Cornell University. He has also been named as 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.
