Krishna Mohan joined the University of Exeter Business School as Full Time Postdoctoral Research Fellow in February 2022. He works for the Research in Theme 4 of the UKRI Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Centre for Technology Metals (Met4Tech CE). His research interests are primarily in recycling and circular economy.

His education was in India. He obtained his PhD from Indian Institute of Technology Madras, M. Tech. in Mechanical Engineering (Industrial Engineering and Management) from National Institute of Technology Calicut, and B. Tech. in Production Engineering from the University of Calicut. His PhD thesis focuses on closed-loop supply chains particularly on the dynamics of end-of-life vehicle recycling in unregulated markets.

Before joining Exeter, he worked as an Assistant Professor in the Operations Management and Quantitative Techniques Department at the Indian Institute of Management Bodh Gaya for over two years. He taught subjects such as Revenue Management, System Dynamics, Business Statistics and Operations Research to graduate students. Before his PhD, he has worked as an Adhoc Lecturer in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, National Institute of Technology Calicut.

Research interests

  • Sustainable Operations Management 
  • System Dynamics and Agent-Based Simulation Modelling  
  • Lithium-Ion Battery Ecosystem

 Krishna Mohan’s PhD thesis focuses on the dynamics of End-of-Life Vehicle (ELV) recycling in unregulated markets. His research provides policy implications for the development of environmentally sound ELV recycling systems. His current research focuses on the dynamics of the Lithium-Ion Battery (LIB) ecosystem. The research focuses on the impact of technological developments in LIB chemistry on the LIB performance and circular economy for LIB.
