Jessye Talley has research expertise in stochastic and deterministic modeling of supply chains using stochastic programming, Markov chains, differential equations, linear programming, and queueing theory. She has a strong interest in the safety and defense of food supply chains which she modeled using compartmental models to show the progression of the illness of a consumer from eating a contaminated food product and the effects of interventions. .
Her current research
interest consists of applications in humanitarian relief, emergency
preparedness and response to address ports, healthcare, and food supply chain
safety and defense.
