Project Description

Logistics is the movement and storage of goods. We rely on logistics to enable and sustain our daily access to critical resources such as water, food, and medical supplies. The importance of logistics is never more apparent than when it has been disrupted due to a disaster. Moreover, disaster response logistics decisions are especially challenging, due to increased needs, uncertainties, and limited resource availability. Dr. Jennifer Pazour’s research explores how to make decisions in logistics and resource-sharing systems. She develops mathematical models and solution algorithms of complex systems as a way of understanding and quantifying trade-offs with operational and design decisions.
