He is also Professor of Operations Management and the Director of the University of Texas Supply Chain Management Center of Excellence (www.mccombs.utexas.edu/scm), a company-sponsored center dedicated to developing research and teaching programs in supply chain management in the Red McCombs School of Business. He served as Information, Risk, and Operations Management Department Chair from 2007-2011. Dr. Morrice received his Ph.D. in Operations Research and Industrial Engineering from Cornell University. His research includes the modeling and analysis of service operations, risk management, and supply chain management. Dr. Morrice’s research has received funding from SAP America under the University Alliance Research Grant Program. Additionally, he was a Visiting Research Scientist for Schlumberger from 1996-1998. Dr. Morrice has over 40 technical publications and 2 patents. His research has appeared in Management Science, Operations Research, IIE Transactions, Journal of Production and Operations Management, and the Association for Computing Machinery Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulation. Dr. Morrice is an area editor for the Association for Computing Machinery Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulation, a senior editor for the Journal of Production and Operations Management, and an editor-at-large for Interfaces. Dr. Morrice served as a Proceedings Editor for the 1996 Winter Simulation Conference, the Program Chair for the 2003 Winter Simulation Conference and is currently an Institute for Operations Research and Management Science (INFORMS) representative and Past-Chair on the Winter Simulation Conference Board of Directors. He is a member of INFORMS and the Production and Operations Management Society. He has designed and delivered executive development programs on operations modeling and supply chain management for several organizations including Schlumberger, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, and Texas Instruments.
