Javad Nasiry is an associate professor of Operations Management at McGill Desautels Faculty of Management where he joined in 2019.  He teaches courses on statistics, decision analytics, and operations management at the undergraduate and graduate levels. 

His main research interests are in behavioral operations, supply chain management, retail operations, operations-marketing interface, and empirical operations-finance interface.  His work in behavioral operations elaborates on whether and how psychological phenomena such as reference effects may affect aggregate variables (e.g., market demand) and their implications on firms' operational policies especially in pricing, inventory, and assortment.  He employs both analytical and experimental research methods to explore the related research questions.
