Profile

Rommert Dekker is a professor of operations research, quantitative logistics, and IT at the Erasmus School of Economics (ESE).



Professor Dekker currently leads an industry-sponsored research program on service logistics.



He has received numerous accolades for his research including ERIM's impact award which honours ERIM researchers who have successfully impacted management practice and the OR Society's Goodeeve medal for best applied paper.



Professor Dekker began his career working at Shell Research. During his seven years at the company he published over 100 papers on topics including reverse logistics, service logistics, inventory control, maintenance optimisation, container logistics and transport optimisation. He was also co-founder of the well-known network for reverse logistics REVLOG.
