She has experience in teaching modules in Management Science Modelling, Statistics and Simulation, Logistics Operations Techniques, Supply Chain Modelling, Quantitative Methods, Global Logistics and Business Research Methods.  Nicoleta's teaching portfolio includes the development, delivery and assessment of a range of modules in the area of analytics and supply chain at undergraduate, Masters and doctoral level. She has developed teaching material that is unique in its method of delivery and assessment and incorporates current theoretical and practical content. Recently, she has developed dedicated teaching material that incorporates audio/video content that is very well received by students and could be used for online delivery of content. 

Since 2005, Nicoleta has been a Course Leader to a range of different courses at Masters and PhD level. She is the former Course Leader for the MSc Global Logistics and Supply Chain Management, former Course Leader to the Post Graduate Certificate in Research Methods for PhD and current Couse Leader to the MSc in Business Intelligence and Analytics .

Nicoleta acts as a PhD project supervisor for a number of projects in the area of supply chain modelling and simulation, supply chain performance measurement systems, supply chain product design and sustainability. To date Nicoleta has 15 successful PhD completions (9 as main supervisor and 6 as co-supervisor). Students who completed their research under her supervision are now in academic positions at Universities in different parts of the world (UK, Greece, Nigeria and Egypt) as well as managers in manufacturing companies. 

Nicoleta is keen to continuously develop her research portfolio, and currently, she has material published in journals such as European Journal of Operational Research, International Journal of Systems Science, International Journal of Sustainable Engineering, International Journal of Productivity and Performance Management, Maritime Policy and Management, Maritime Economics and Logistics journal and others. 

She has considerable industrial experience, having spent over three years in Unilever, Home and Personal Care Europe as a Supply Chain Modelling Manager. During the time spent in industry, she was able to evaluate how supply chain modelling, business analytics, master data management and ERP systems are developed, implemented and applied in industry. Prior this Nicoleta started her research career in Cranfield School of Management (UK), Transport and Logistics Department as a Research Fellow.

She received a PhD from The University of Sheffield (UK), Department of Automatic Control and System Engineering in the area of On-line scheduling and heuristic control of production and supply chain systems. She has an MA in Professional Development (Higher Education Practice) from the University of Huddersfield (UK). Nicoleta graduated with an engineering (Ing) degree in Computing and Automatic Control Engineering from The Technical University of Cluj-Napoca (Romania).
