My name is Xavier Brusset. I hold a PhD from the Université catholique de Louvain as well as an Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches from Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense university. I teach in French, English and Spanish.
I have been teaching since 2009 Logistics and Supply Chain Management at the Toulouse Business School, ESSCA and now SKEMA since 2016.
My research focuses on the relationship between the supply chain partners and the impact of information and collaboration on their behavior.
This stems from my previous experience as a co-founder in Argentina of a web-based service to help shippers and carriers to communicate more efficiently about cargoes to transport and available trucks. The problem of efficiency is pervasive in any supply chain. This is why I became interested in information sharing and collaboration between suppliers and customers.
I am now also interested in how the vagaries of the weather affect sales of consumer goods. If the weather is hot, people will buy icecream. But what happens if the weather is cloudy? If it rains? How will the retailer’s, the manufacturer’s sales and profit be affected if there is a wet or cool summer? The purpose of my research is to help such businesses to reduce the dependency of financial results on the weather.
