Research biography

I am a lecturer in Operations and Supply Chain Management at the Australian Institute of Business (AIB). Before joining AIB, I worked at the University of South Australia Business School, receiving my PhD in Supply Chain Management in 2019.

My primary areas of research include managing disruptions in supply chains. Much of my research had been directed at understanding how a supply chain can become resilient. Specifically, I studied the role that individual-level factors play in making supply chains more resilient. My research suggested a set of individual attributes that can be considered managerial antecedents of supply chain resilience. I have recently shifted the focus of my research to the concept of "antifragile supply chain", which I introduced to the discipline for the first time in 2021. Unlike resilience aiming to survive disruptions, an antifragile supply chain aims to gain from disorders and thrive.

Ethan left AIB to join the University of Wollongong in 2024, but continues to supervise research candidates as an adjunct.
