Biography

Mikaella Polyviou researches supply disruptions, which are interruptions in the flow of goods, services, or information from a supplier to a buyer. These interruptions can happen due to a variety of triggering events occurring in the supply chain network, such as natural disasters, factory fires, or transportation accidents.

Dr. Polyviou studies the role of individuals and the enterprise in improving a firm’s resilience. At the individual level, she explores how managers react to supply disruptions and make sourcing decisions after a disruption. At the enterprise level, she examines the firm capabilities and supply chain strategies that help mitigate the occurrence and impact of disruptions.

Dr. Polyviou joined the W. P. Carey School of Business in 2016. She received her bachelor's degree from the University of Cyprus, and Masters and Ph.D. from The Ohio State University. She has been a Fulbrighter twice.
