Brett Massimino

Assistant Professor and Professor Robert M. Chase Faculty Fellow
Services Operations Management

Brett Massimino is an assistant professor at the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration (SHA). Brett joined the faculty in July 2014, after receiving his PhD in operations management from the Fisher College of Business at the Ohio State University. Brett also holds a BS in computer engineering (summa cum laude) and an MBA in supply chain management. Prior to pursuing his PhD, Brett held a number of professional roles in international product management and software development. Brett currently teaches service operations management at SHA.

In his research, Brett investigates operational performance in globally distributed organizational settings. Specifically, he considers the confidentiality of proprietary, digital assets as a non-traditional, operational performance outcome. Brett’s research focuses on empirical phenomena—the worker behaviors, inter-organizational communications, and the location-specific, contextual conditions which may drive the outcomes related to digital asset confidentiality (e.g., data breaches, intellectual property losses, etc.). Methodologically, Brett leverages his background in software development throughout his research by developing and using a variety of modern automation techniques to facilitate the large-scale collection, management, visualization, and analysis of data. Brett currently has work published in Production and Operations Management, and also has a number of articles currently under review at other high-ranking operations management journals.
