Jury is an associate professor of Sustainability and Operations Management at the Ivey Business School, Western University (Canada). He is passionate about supply chains as complex systems of collective organizing.

His research focuses on how organizations within complex supply chains interact to enhance both individual and collective performance, economically and ecologically. Key questions his research addresses include: What supply chain designs are most ecologically sustainable yet profitable? What beliefs and governance structures characterize such supply chains? And through what self-organizing processes do these supply chain designs emerge? Jury's work aims to understand how transparency regarding ecological risks and impacts in global supply chains can be improved and, more recently, to catalyze the transition toward more circular and regenerative agri-food systems.

Jury’s research is published in premier journals such as the Journal of Operations Management, the Journal of Supply Chain Management, and the Journal of Industrial Ecology. He serves as an Associate Editor at the Journal of Supply Chain Management and is on the Editorial Boards of the Journal of Operations Management and the Production and Operations Management Journal. His work has been featured in media outlets including The Globe and Mail, CBC, Corporate Knights, The Conversation, The Toronto Star, The Financial Post, and B the Change.

Jury has received numerous awards for the originality, relevance, and rigor of his research and teaching: Western’s Faculty Scholar Award (2024), Ivey’s Research Merit Award (2024), the Financial Times’ Highly Commended Responsible Teaching Case (2024), the Clean16 Leadership Award by Delta Management (2023), the Distinguished David G. Burgoyne Teaching Award (2022), the Academy of Management Best Paper Award (2021), the Journal of Operations Management’s Best Reviewer Award (Honorable Mention) (2021), two Best Paper Awards from the International Purchasing and Supply Management Education and Research Association (2016 and 2012), the Journal of Purchasing and Supply Management’s Best Reviewer Award (2015), and the Production and Operations Management’s Runner-up for Best PhD Proposal Award (2012).

Jury’s commitment to positive impact has led him to take on leadership roles at Ivey’s Building Sustainable Value (BSV) Research Centre and its sister organization, the Network for Business Sustainability (NBS). BSV designs and executes interdisciplinary research projects to drive systems change toward a fairer and ecologically sound future. NBS connects educators with managers to mobilize business sustainability globally.

Jury is a member of the Complex Adaptive Supply Network – Research Accelerator (CASN-RA) at Arizona State University. Before joining Ivey, he was a faculty member at University College Dublin’s Smurfit School of Business (Ireland). Jury holds a doctoral degree in economics and management of technology and a master’s degree in engineering and management from the University of Bergamo (Italy).
