Research

Overview

Luisa’s expertise in manufacturing systems' complexity, contextualises her current research interests at firm and supply chain levels: sustainable supply chains, management of disruptions to distribution/logistics and high value manufacturing.

She has disseminated the results of her research using various routes including: internationally ranked academic journals and several international conferences. She has also been fostering links with researchers in Latin America and Europe.

She has co-Guest Edited a special volume on “Decision-support models and tools for helping to make real progress to more sustainable societies” for the Journal of Cleaner Production (Vol. 105), as well as two special issues for the International Journal of Productivity and Performance Management on: “Third Sector and Performance” (Vol. 63, No. 6) and “Performance measurement of sustainable supply chains” (Vol. 62, No.8). More recently, she is a co-Guest Editor of a special issue on “Service Improvement in Public Sector Operations – a European comparative analysis” for the European Management Journal.
