Amitabh Sinha is an Associate Professor of Technology and Operations at the Ross School of Business. He arrived at Ross in 2004, after receiving his PhD in Algorithms, Combinatorics and Optimization from the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University. He teaches the core Statistics class in various versions of the MBA program, as well as an elective class in Logistics. He recently developed a new lab-style class on Big Data for the MBA program.

Amitabh’s current research primarily focuses on the operational aspects of ecommerce/omnichannel retail. For instance, one of his ongoing research projects explores the optimization of order fulfillment by online retailers; another examines the design of retail stores and inventory management for omnichannel fulfillment through stores.
