Profile

Merieke Stevens is an Associate Professor of Technology & Operations Management at RSM Erasmus University, and a Visiting Academic Fellow at the Institute for Manufacturing, Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge.

Merieke's research focuses on Supply Ecosystems. She is particularly interested in how supply chain processes can be adjusted to improve economic, societal, and environmental outputs. One of her focus areas is the use of trust and digital tools to increase supply chain transparency and inclusiveness.

Merieke lived in Japan for several years, where she conducted extensive on-site research in the automotive industry. She retains her automotive focus, but applies her experience to other settings such as medical teams, global ports, and the energy infrastructure.

Merieke teaches, amongst others, the core course Operations Management in RSM's fulltime MBA, and received the 2014-2016 PMB Best Teacher Award. She has held visiting positions at The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania; the Faculty of Economics, University of Tokyo; and the Management Research Center, École Polytechnique Paris.
