Professor

"The Canada Research Chair, along with the tremendous support of UBC Sauder, has allowed me a greater focus on research than is normally possible at a major business school. It has also allowed me to travel for seminars and to international conferences attended by the top scholars in my field."

“My research greatly benefits from the wonderful collaborations I have enjoyed with faculty and students at UBC, as well as across the world. The Canada Research Chair has allowed me to get more collaboration opportunities outside my focal research area, get access to data sets from companies and government agencies, as well as conducting more inter-disiplinary studies. It has helped shape my research agenda in very positive ways.”

Lecturer

Operations & Logistics Division

 

“Many of the approaches I use in the classroom I’ve picked up by watching others teach, getting ideas from Food for Though sessions, and chatting with other faculty. I’ve learned that I can connect with the class much more effectively when we discuss not just what we’re learning, but why it is important.”

This is the secret sauce to being successful in industry - being able to call upon all these disciplines, and applying that knowledge in a relevant manner.”

Assistant Professor

Professor

“I am really interested in how we can encourage consumers to take some cost to the self - so maybe the option costs more or is more effortful - for an option that has some broader social good (it has benefits for others or for the planet)”
