Bill Rose holds a BA in English Literature, an MS in Higher Education, and an MBA in Logistics and Supply Chain Management from the University of North Texas. He recently completed his PhD in Supply Chain Management at the University of Tennessee (Tennessee, U.S.A.). During his time at Tennessee, Bill taught classes in logistics, supply chain management, and business analytics.

Bill's main research interests focus on urban logistics and analytical methods, including agent-based simulation modeling and metaheuristics. Currently, he is exploring the differences between urban systems, how firms tailor their logistics strategies to unique urban area characteristics, and how to integrate these characteristics into decision making tools. To aid this research, Bill has built relationships with multiple American logistics service providers and retailers.

Bill has published research exploring the definition of supply chain integration and its connection to performance in the Journal of Business Logistics as well as an examination of urban area stakeholders and their interaction with logistics operations in the International Journal of Physical Distribution & Logistics Management. Prior to his PhD program at the University of Tennessee, Bill worked with the Housing and Residence Life Department at the University of North Texas.
