Atanu Chaudhuri is an Associate Professor in Technology & Operations Management at Durham University Business School. He has around 9 years of industrial experience spanning automobile manufacturing, operations and supply chain consulting and research. He has worked with firms like Tata Motors, ECS Limited and Deloitte Research. He also has 9 years of academic experience and has held academic positions at Indian Institute of Management, Lucknow and at Aalborg University, Denmark. He had received the Best Teacher Award from the Study Board of Business and Industry at Aalborg University in 2017. He also leads the Digital Supply Chain working group of Mobility goes additive, a leading network for advancement and adoption of 3D Printing in mobility related industries and has been invited to speak at multiple industry forums on additive manufacturing in Denmark and Sweden.
His research interests are in supply chains and business models for digital manufacturing (with particular focus on additive manufacturing technologies), supply chain risk management and supply chain integration. His research is inspired by real problems in the industry and is most relevant for automotive, aerospace, industrial products, food processing, food retail and logistics industries. He is currently working on problems related to part selection for additive manufacturing, designing suitable supply chain structures and business models for additive manufacturing, design for additive manufacturing and its impact on performance, predictive analytics for maintenance and spare parts planning, risk and recall management in food supply chains and adoption of digital technologies in cold chains.
He has received funding from UK-India Education and Research Initiative, Danish agency for Science and Higher Education and Innovation Fund, Denmark, Turkish Research Agency (TUBITAK) for his research.
Dr. Chaudhuri has published in leading journals in Operations, Supply Chain and Technology Management such as International Journal of Operations and Production Management, International Journal of Production Research, Transportation Research: Part E, Supply Chain Management: An International Journal, Computers and Industrial Engineering, R&D Management, Journal of Engineering and Technology Management among others. He is also a Senior Associate Editor of International Journal of Logistics management.
Dr. Chaudhuri received his doctoral degree from Indian Institute of Management, Lucknow. His Phd focussed on integrated product platform planning, pricing and launch sequence determination and supply chain design for different platforms of commercial vehicles. He holds a Bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering from Jadavpur University, India.
