Jury's research is positioned at the intersection between Supply Chain Management and Sustainability. Particularly, his research is primarily concerned with how organizations develop, adapt and leverage their supply chains to positively impact their business, society and the natural environment. This research has investigated how trust, integration and globalization at the supply chain level affect the extent to which manufacturing firms within the chain successfully adopt safer and greener production and sourcing practices. This research has also theorized how manufacturing firms can build full accountability in their supply chains, and the importance of leveraging inclusive decision-making processes that align divergent stakeholders' expectations. An emerging line of research investigates how International NGOs cooperate with other non-profit organizations and for-profit firms to deliver transformational change in large social and industrial systems. This research aims to describe, understand and predict how INGOs should configure their own supply chains to deliver people-centered developmental services for human progress and environmental conservation.

This research has received several awards from Production and Operations Management Society (POMS) and the International Purchasing and Supply Management Education and Research Association (IPSERA) and has appeared in leading outlets including Journal of Operations Management, Journal of Supply Chain Management, International Journal of Operations and Production Management, and several others.
