Dr Yiyi Fan

Lecturer in Operations Management and Information Systems

The Management School



PhD supervision

I am interested in supervising PhD research projects in Supply Chain Risk/Resilience and Buyer-Supplier Relationships.

My Role

Programme Director for MSc Logistics and Supply Chain Management


Dr Yiyi Fan is an Assistant Professor of Operations Management and Information Systems in the Department of Management Science at Lancaster University. Her research interests include supply chain risk management, buyer-supplier relationships, and the operations-finance interface. Her research examines how, and under which conditions, organizations can effectively deal with supply chain risks and build resilience within their supply chains.


Yiyi is exploring two areas related to the broader themes of supply chain risks, disruptions, and resilience: (1) the supply network involving relationships between buyers and suppliers at both the firm level and individual levels, and (2) the disclosure of supply chain risk information, such as cybersecurity risks.


Her research findings have been published in journals such as the International Journal of Operations & Production Management, Supply Chain Management: An International Journal, and Annals of Operations Research. She has received several awards, including the Kingsman Prize for the Best Doctoral Researcher in Management Science (LUMS, 2019), the Chris Voss Highly Commended Paper Award (EurOMA, 2019), and the Dean's Award for Research Excellence (LUMS, 2021). Additionally, her PhD research was selected by the editorial team of the International Journal of Operations & Production Management as the Highly Commended winner of the 2020 Emerald/EFMD Outstanding Doctoral Research Award in the Operations and Production Management category. She currently serves on the Editorial Review Board of the Journal of Supply Chain Management.
