Globalization and increased variety of products have impacted the uncertainty in both demand and supply. The changes, though gradual, have accumulated over time and posed enormous difficulties in planning procurement. Qi Wu studies strategies that help firms tackle this challenge using stochastic control and econometric models. She is particularly interested in problems related to assortment planning and the impact of risk and financial factors on operational decisions.
