Mikaella Polyviou's research centers on supply chain disruptions - interruptions in the flow of goods, services, or information occuring in the supply chain as a result of triggering events. She uses multiple methods to investigate empirically how organizations can become more resilience to such supply chain disruptions. In doing so, she examines both the role of individuals and of organizations as a whole.

Mikaella joined the W. P. Carey School of Business in 2016. She received her bachelor's degree from the University of Cyprus, her Master in Business Logistics Engineering, and, later, her Ph.D. from The Ohio State University. She has been a Fulbright scholar twice. .
