About the Author

You want to know more about the author of this blog? This is the place.

My name is Daniel Dumke. At the moment I am research student at the University of Technology (TU) in Hamburg (Germany). My major research interest is in the risk management aspects of strategic supply chain design.

I am using this blog as my prime location for thoughts about supply chain risk management and to foster exchange between researchers and business on this topic. Therefore the focus will be

  1. on research (eg. summaries of research papers in Supply Chain Management),
  2. news (eg. upcoming conferences) and
  3. sometimes a status update on my thesis.

My contributions can also be found on pages like the Kinaxis Supply Chain Expert Community and Research Blogging.
