Biography

Marc Jansen is a doctoral candidate at the University of Cambridge Judge Business School. His research explores applications of game theory to study prevention and mitigation of disruption following technology and equipment failure. He is interested in the effect of contracts and incentives on disruption risk management, specifically when companies and organisations need to collaborate in the face of disruption. 

Marc holds an MPhil degree in Management Science and Operations from the University of Cambridge and a BA with honours in mathematics and economics from Utrecht University. As an undergraduate he spent a semester studying abroad at the University of California, Santa Barbara. From January to May of 2016 he was a visiting researcher at the SUTD-MIT International Design Centre at Singapore University of Technology and Design. 

Marc has teaching experience through roles as a teaching assistant for the Management Science core courses on the MBA and Executive MBA at Cambridge Judge Business School. Next to research and teaching he has worked on several consulting projects in the pharmaceutical industry and alternative investments.

To support his research, Marc was awarded a scholarship by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), as well as grants by the University of Cambridge Judge Business School, Downing College Glynn Jones Fund and LyondellBasell Industries. To complete his MPhil programme he was awarded a full scholarship through the Huygens Scholarship Program (Nuffic HSP).
