Jury Gualandris

Associate Professor in Operations Management and Sustainability at Ivey Business School, Western University

Jury Gualandris is an Associate Professor in the Operations Management and Sustainability groups at the Ivey Business School, Western University. Jury uses operational and organizational lenses and empirical methods to study how sustainability can be integrated in supply chains, and the implications for competitiveness. This research has been featured by ‘The Conversation’ and the ‘Network for Business Sustainability’ and has appeared in top OM journals like the Journal of Operations Management, the Journal of Supply Chain Management, and the International Journal of Operations and Productions Management, among others. Jury’s research has examined the organizational antecedents and performance outcomes of diverse sustainable sourcing practices like supplier auditing and supplier development. This research also investigates how the adoption and effective deployment of these practices is contingent to the structural and relational characteristics of a supply chain i.e., the pattern and depth of inter-organizational relationships between supply chain members. Currently, this research program is expanding into the study of novel sourcing and processing practices in a circular economy i.e., when firms source and use another firm’s waste to generate environmental and economic value. Jury leads the Circular Economy priority area of the Centre for Building Sustainable Value at the Ivey Business School.

Jury Gualandris is a Research Partner in the Greening Growth Partnership and The Economics & Environmental Policy Research Network.
