Research Interests

Dr Yiyi Fan is an Assistant Professor of Operations Management and Information Systems in the Department of Management Science. Her research interests include supply chain risk management, buyer-supplier relationships, and operations-finance interface. Her research examines how, and under which conditions, organizations can deal with supply chain risks and build resilience into their supply chains. Yiyi is exploring two areas related to the broader themes of supply chain risks, disruptions, and resilience: (1) the supply network that involves relationships between buyers and suppliers at the firm level and individual level; and (2) the disclosure of supply chain risks (e.g., cybersecurity risks) related information.
