Prof. Dr. Mirjam Meijer

Assistant Professor of Operations Management

Prof. Dr. Mirjam Meijer is Assistant Professor of Operations Management at Kühne Logistics University. She obtained her PhD in Operations Management and Logistics at Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Econometrics and Operations Research and a Master of Science in Econometrics and Management Science with a specialization in Operations Research and Quantitative Logistics, both from Erasmus University Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

In her research, she focuses on inventory control and supply chain optimization and coordination problems that are based on practical challenges faced by manufacturers of high-tech products and their suppliers. For this, she uses different methodologies, including stochastic optimization, game theory, Markov processes and queueing theory. Her research has been published in the European Journal of Operational Research and Naval Research Logistics and she presented her work at international conferences (e.g. INFORMS, MSOM, International Symposium of Inventory Research). She was awarded a prestigious Fulbright Scholarship to visit UCLA Anderson School of Management, but the visit was cancelled due to the Covid pandemic.

Mirjam Meijer has taught classes on stochastic operations management and inventory control in the Bachelor program of Industrial Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology. Additionally, she has supervised students during their graduation projects.
