Biography

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

Dr. Polyviou studies the role of individuals and the firm in improving firm resilience to supply chain disruptions. At the individual level, she examines how managers react to supply chain disruptions and make sourcing decisions afterward. At the firm level, she examines a firm's capabilities and supply chain strategies that reduce the probability and impact of supply chain disruptions. Her research on supply chain disruptions has won research grants from various organizations, including the National Center for the Middle Market and the Institute for Supply Management. 

Dr. Polyviou won the Outstanding Graduate Teaching Award at the W. P. Carey School of Business in 2021. She serves on the Editorial Review Board of Decision Sciences and the Journal of Business Logistics.

She received her bachelor's degree from the University of Cyprus and a Master's and Ph.D. from The Ohio State University. She has also been a Fulbrighter twice and attended Boston University and The Ohio State University.
