Dr. Mozart Menezes is a professor at the Kedge BS, where he leads the Supply Chain & Complexity Management lab (sc2m). Previously, he has been a faculty member at the Haskayne School of Business, University of Calgary; at the Zaragoza Logistics Center, Spain; and at HEC School of Management – Paris. Professor Menezes has held visiting positions at the Center for Transportation and Logistics (CTL) at MIT– Boston, USA; and at ICN Business School in Nancy, France. From 2007 to 2012, Dr. Menezes was the PhD Program Director at the Zaragoza Logistics Center and during his tenure in that institution he was awarded the Research Chair Ramón y Cajal in Economics by the Spanish Government.

Dr. Menezes has worked with either as employee or in projects, as consultant or advisor, to several companies including Alcatel-Lucent, City of Calgary, Danone-Nutricia, Environmental Research Systems, General Motors, Imaginarium, Medecins Sans Frontieres, Procter and Gamble, Saica Natur, Solutia, Sonoco, Telefonica, and others. He has worked as investigators in several projects funded by the European Union, Spanish Government and the Government of Aragon.  Dr. Menezes obtained a BSc degree in Civil Engineering from the Universidade Federal do Para, Belém, Brazil. Dr. Menezes received an MSc degree in Civil Engineering specializing in Project Management and an MSc degree in Industrial Administration from Clemson University, USA. He received a PhD degree in Operations Management from the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto, Canada.

His main areas of research are Supply Chain Network design and Complexity & Risk Management.  Within the design area he develops optimization models for facility location, inventory management systems, and transportation systems.  Within the Complexity & Risk area developed under the umbrella of sc2m lab, he has worked, or is working, with several companies developing mechanisms for managing supply chain complexity and risk. Methodologically, his interests are concentrated on combinatorial optimization. His work has been published in highly respected journals such as the Annals of Operations Research, Decision Sciences, the European Journal of Operational Research, Omega, Operations Research, Transportation Research-B, among others.
