Alexander works with Prof. Scott Webster in a joint research project in which they investigate the sourcing strategies and potential interventions of global health buyers when procuring live-saving devices such as malaria diagnostic tests, water filtration systems, or HIV- and tuberculosis testing equipment. During his stay he also attends research seminars, discusses his research projects with the faculty and explores new research opportunities. Alexander also attended the Production & Operations Management Society’s Annual Meeting where he held an invited talk on how global health procurers can use an innovative sourcing mechanism to learn supplier characteristics and improve their sourcing decision.

In 2013 Dr. Philipp Ecken spent a semester at Harvard Business School. Dr. Alexander Rothkopf works closely with researchers at the University of Michigan and Prof. Richard Pibernik has an appointment as Adjunct Professor at the Zaragoza Logistics Center, where he teaches in the MIT-Zaragoza Program.
