RESEARCHER. INNOVATOR. AUTHOR.
Yvonne Badulescu is a PhD graduate from the HEC Lausanne at the University of Lausanne, a Senior Researcher at the Geneva School of Business Administration - University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland (HES-SO) as well as the Regional Coordinator for VNL, the Swiss Association of Logistics Network.
Previously, Yvonne has held various positions in the manufacturing industry in Switzerland after moving from Australia to complete a Masters of Mechanical Engineering degree from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology at Lausanne (EPFL).
Her research interests include the use of Big Data in production management, manufacturing, and Supply Chain, and the role of human judgment in decision-making with various academic publications.
Publishing has allowed me to network with other scholars and to further refine my own ideas and research. It’s something I enjoy immensely and hope that these papers will help others further their science and welcome any opportunities to collaborate.
My exposure to both academic and industrial settings over the past 12 years has taught me to think strategically, pragmatically, and scientifically, positioning me as someone able to imagine, connect and direct research efforts towards tangible objectives and strategic targets.
My educational background is diverse. I've studied in Australia, Switzerland and Costa Rica. I have been awarded two Bachelor degrees in Engineering and Business in Australia. I received my Masters of Engineering from the EPFL and my PhD from the UNIL in Switzerland, with an exchange year in Costa Rica.
