Molly Hughes

PhD Student – Logistics

Marketing & Logistics


Molly Hughes’ research interests focus on two streams of research which regularly converge, the pharmaceutical supply chain and supply chain risk management. Seven years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry cultivated the interest in these research topics and the Ph.D. program at Fisher has provided the tools and perspective necessary to expand into the research domain. 

Prior to the Ph.D. program at Fisher, Molly studied towards a MSc in Global Logistics at Kuehne Logistics University in Hamburg, Germany and received her BSBA in Marketing & Logistics from The Ohio State University.


Funded Research

Molly is currently working on a team of researchers funded through a $1.7 million BAA from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration with the focus on quality management and pharmaceutical firm learning to reduce drug quality risk.
