“I find the work extremely rewarding,” Pazour said. “One of the aspects that I really like about my job is that I get paid to learn. I’m both creating knowledge and disseminating knowledge to my students, and that’s very rewarding.”
I’m even more excited to announce that two of the students in my research group are recipients of a 2015/2016 Material Handling Education Foundation Scholarship. The Material Handling Education Foundation provides scholarships and educational opportunities to students studying in the field of material handling, logistics and supply chain.
- Shahab Mofidi was awarded the Lee Wood Scholarship for the 2015/2016 academic year from the Material Handling Education Foundation, Inc.

Shahab Mofidi is a Ph.D. student in the IEMS department, and his research focuses on logistical decision making in environments that exhibit item location uncertainty. Some examples include sea-based logistics, as well as ship-from-store fulfillment operations for e-commerce orders. Catherine Ninah is an undergraduate student in the IEMS department, who has conducted research on sea-based logistics and healthcare logistics. In addition, Catherine will participate in an REU (research experience for undergraduates) this summer at Duke University. She’ll be working with The Center for the Environmental Implications of NanoTechnology (CEINT) on Risk Assessment and Modeling.
