Ximin (Natalie) Huang is an Assistant Professor of Supply Chain and Operations at the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota. She holds a Ph.D. in Operations Management from Georgia Institute of Technology, and an MPhil and a BSc in Applied Mathematics from the University of Hong Kong. Her research focuses on supply chain management and sustainable operations. Her current projects focus on impacts of environmental legislation on firms’ sustainability strategies. For example, how the take-back legislation based on Extended Producer Responsibility incentivizes firms to involve in end-of-life product collection and recycling, as well as designing environmentally-sound products, or how the carbon emission legislation influences the firms’ production technology choices. She is also interested in exploring how sustainable operational strategies help enhance firms’ profitability.
