Jury is an Associate Professor in the Operations Management and Sustainability groups at Ivey. Jury uses operational and organizational lenses and empirical methods to study the development of supply chains that strive to operate within the thresholds of socio-ecological systems. This research has been featured by ‘The Conversation’ and the ‘Network for Business Sustainability’ and has appeared in top OM journals like the Journal of Operations Management, the Journal of Supply Chain Management, and the International Journal of Operations and Productions Management, among others.

Jury’s research has examined the organizational antecedents and performance outcomes of diverse sustainable sourcing practices like supplier auditing and supplier development. This research also investigates how the adoption and effective deployment of these practices is contingent to the structural and relational characteristics of a supply chain i.e., the pattern and depth of inter-organizational relationships between supply chain members. Currently, this research program is expanding into the study of novel sourcing and processing practices in a circular economy i.e., when firms source and use another firm’s waste to generate environmental and economic value.

In a related line of research, Jury has investigated the operational capabilities and processes of non-governmental organizations like Oxfam, which design and coordinate complex interventions to prompt positive transformational change in societies, industries and supply chains.
