Professor and Chair in Integrative Studies, UMass Amherst

As of April 2021, I am the Eugene M. Isenberg Chair in Integrative Studies at the Isenberg School of Management at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Previously, I was the John F. Smith Memorial Professor of Operations Management at the Isenberg School. in 2001, I founded the Virtual Center for Supernetworks at the Isenberg School, which I continue to serve as Director of. I have had over 200 journal articles published and 15 books on various network themes including supply chains. My recent awards include being elected a Fellow of the Network Science Society in 2019 and also receipt of The Constantin Caratheodory Prize from the International Society of Global Optimization. In 2020 I received the Harold Larnder Prize, and am only the second female to receive this award, which has been given annually for 35 years.

Professor Anna Nagurney is regularly contacted by the media due to her expertise on network systems and supply chains.
