Research

Damian Beil teaches the MBA operations management core and an elective on strategic sourcing. In his research, Beil develops mathematical models to analyze complex problems in sourcing. His work includes studies of how bargaining power affects opportunistic pricing by suppliers, how procurement auctions should be designed to account for supplier qualification screening, quality levels, and long-term maintenance of a healthy supplier base, and how feedback affects crowdsourcing outcomes. He serves as an Associate Editor for Management Science, Operations Research and Naval Research Logistics, and as a Senior Editor for POMS.

Prior to joining Michigan, Beil received a BA in Mathematics from New College and a PhD in Operations Research from M.I.T.
