Assistant Professor of Supply Chain Management

EducationAli Tolooie

  • Ph.D. degree in Industrial Engineering from Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS, USA. 2018-2022
  • M.S. in Industrial Engineering from University Technology Malaysia, Johor, Malaysia. 2013-2015
  • B.S. in Industrial Engineering from Iran. 2006-2010

Dr. Tolooie earned his Ph.D. in industrial engineering from Kansas State University and a master’s degree in industrial engineering at the University Technology Malaysia in Johor, Malaysia. He earned his B.S. in industrial engineering from Iran.

Before starting his Ph.D. program, he served as a research assistant at University Malaya, doing research on various supply chain and logistics project.

His research focuses on the modeling and optimization of stochastic supply chain systems. He has aimed to improve the reliability and resiliency of the supply chain network through the development of stochastic optimization models and methods to help address important problems related to product delivery on last-mile logistics.

To date, his work has resulted in more than seven top-tier peer-reviewed journals and seven conference presentations.
