Cornell Directory Entry


Andrew Davis is an associate professor of operations, technology, and information management, and previous director of the Business Simulation Lab, at the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management. His research examines supply chains and operations management, with a particular focus on procurement, contracting, bargaining, the sharing economy, and human-algorithm interactions. Because these settings require managerial input in practice, Davis employs a behavioral methodology when investigating these problems. In particular, he conducts controlled laboratory experiments with human participants to investigate how behavioral factors affect decisions and outcomes.

His research has been published in Management Science, Manufacturing & Service Operations Management, and Production and Operations Management. He serves as an associate editor for Management Science and a senior editor for Production & Operations Management, and he is a former president of the INFORMS Behavioral Operations Section.

Awards Davis has received include third place in the Wickham Skinner Early Career Accomplishments Award, the Best Reviewer Award from the Production and Operations Management Society, the Best Behavioral Operations Management Working Paper from INFORMS, a finalist for the Best Public Operations Research Paper from INFORMS, the Distinguished Service Award and Meritorious Service Award from Management Science (four times), the Clifford H. Whitcomb Faculty Fellowship from the Johnson School, and Half Century Fellowship from the Johnson School. He has also been named 40-Under-40 Best MBA Professors by Poets&Quants.

Davis earned a BA in economics from Colgate University, an MBA from The Pennsylvania State University, and a PhD in supply chain management also from the Pennsylvania State University.
