Hyper-connected logistics

Lead: Dr. Marc Poulin
Conducted in partnership with Georgia Tech, this research focuses on the evolution of the 'Physical Internet', a global logistics system based on the interconnection of logistic networks by a standardized set of collaboration protocols, modular containers, and smart interfaces, for increased efficiency and sustainability. As it becomes evident that the way physical objects are currently supplied and transported around the world is unsustainable, both economically and environmentally, the Physical Internet is set to transform the way global supply chains function.

Emerging financial markets

Lead: Dr. Elgilani Elshareif
This research models the impact of risk over time on the patterns of stock market return in emerging markets, and in doing so, establishes a model that might be applicable beyond academia, in a policy context.
