Jason Nguyen is an Assistant Professor in the Operations Management and Sustainability groups at Ivey. Prior to joining Ivey, Jason was a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at the UNSW Business School, University of New South Wales, Sydney Australia and was a founding faculty at the College of Business and Management, VinUniversity Hanoi, Vietnam. He holds a Ph.D. in Supply Chain and Operations Management from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, US. M.Sc. in Operations Management from Singapore Management University and B.Eng in Computer Engineering from Nanyang Technological University.

Jason’s research aspiration is to contribute academic insights for the movement toward a global circular and sustainable economy that minimizes the consumption of resources, energy, and emissions. In his research, Jason utilizes tools from game theory, optimization, behavioral experiments, econometrics, and big data analytics to rigorously conceptualize and analyze how firms’ sustainable choices (configurations and operational decisions), as well as the resulting performance and profitability, are influenced by organizational antecedents and external factors (regulations, policies, incentive mechanisms, supply chain relationship and other stakeholders’ behaviors and perceptions). The primary research objective is to provide managerial insights that guide and inform the development and implementation of more effective environmental policies and incentive schemes. His research papers have been published in prestigious peer-reviewed journals including Management Science, Manufacturing and Services Operations Management and Environmental and Resource Economics.
