Emily Dickey

PhD Candidate

Emily C. Dickey joined the KLU as a PhD candidate in September 2020 under the primary and secondary supervision of Prof. Dr. Prisca Brosi and Prof. Dr. Jan C. Fransoo, respectively. Her dissertation research lies at the crossroads of Operations and Supply Chain Management (OSCM) research and Organizational Psychology research, specifically focusing on the role of managerial emotions in OSCM contexts. With a focus on behavioral experiments, she is particularly concerned with the effect managers' emotions have on social sustainability decisions, like worker safety, decent working hours in operations, and supplier selection processes in global supply chains.

Emily graduated with a BSc from the University of Tennessee in the United States in 2018, where she studied Supply Chain Management and first began her academic research in sustainable and ethical supply chain practices.

Before joining KLU as a PhD candidate, Emily completed a double MSc degree in Global Logistics and Supply Chain Management from both the University of Tennessee and the KLU. She completed her studies with a Master thesis analyzing supply chain transparency initiatives and their impact on consumer perceptions of labor conditions in garment supply chains. In line with this topic, she additionally continues research on ethical and sustainable supply chain management, particularly focused on supply chain transparency and integrity.
