    I am an industrial engineer and my research focuses on two domains of operations management: inventory theory and supply chain management. My works are mainly theoretical and they aim to reveal how to make optimal decisions in various environments. I investigate both deterministic and stochastic models, and use game theoretic approach to model the interaction across and among supply chains. In particular, I seek for optimal/equilibrium strategies for pricing, quality investment, sales effort and advertising. My recent studies focus on supply chains of virtual products (apps, subscriptions, online games, e-music, etc.) and how different contract types affect equilibrium and the reward of the supply chain members. From October 2014 to September 2023, I served as the Head of Research in the Department of Management in Bar-Ilan University, and from October 2023, I have been serving as the Department Chair.
