Whitman welcomes new faculty Moss, Rice, Wu


Whitman is happy to announce three new faculty members:

Todd Moss has joined Whitman as an assistant professor of entrepreneurship and faculty director of the Sustainable Enterprise Partnership. Moss's research focuses on the intersections of entrepreneurship, social responsibility and innovation. His research has appeared in Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice, Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, and The Academy of Management Learning and Education, among others. Given his interest in the growing research stream of social entrepreneurship, he will be teaching undergraduate and graduate courses supporting the Certificate of Advanced Study in Sustainable Enterprise (CASSE).

Previously, Moss was an assistant professor of strategy and entrepreneurship at Oregon State University. He earned BS and MS degrees in mechanical engineering from Brigham Young University (BYU) and an MBA from BYU's Marriott School of Management. He earned his PhD in business administration with an emphasis in strategic management and entrepreneurship from Texas Tech University.

Daniel M. Rice has joined Whitman as an assistant professor of practice, law and public policy. Rice has more than 20 years of legal experience and continues to practice law. He has represented clients in a variety of courts including the New York State Supreme Court, New York City Criminal Court, Federal Bankruptcy Court, Onondaga County Family Court and Syracuse City Court in real estate matters, criminal and product liability cases, employment disputes, malpractice and negligence claims, domestic disputes, estate planning, probate, adoptions and matrimonial matters.

Rice's latest research involves studying why the court system will now order a party in a lawsuit to provide their social media information (i.e. Facebook) to their opponent. Rice earned both his MBA and juris doctor degrees at Syracuse University. He has taught at the Whitman School as an adjunct professor since 2006.

Zhengping Wu, an assistant professor of operations management at the Lee Kong Chian School of Business at Singapore Management University, has joined the Whitman School as a visiting professor in the supply chain management program. Wu's research interests are in supply chain, pricing and inventory, and game-theoretic models in operations management. He was a member of the Dean's Teaching Honour List at the Lee Kong Chian School of Business each year from 2004-2011.

A 2004 recipient of the Lee Foundation Fellowship for Research Excellence at Singapore Management University, Wu received his bachelor's and master's degrees, both in industrial management engineering, from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 1993 and 1996 respectively. He earned his PhD in operations management from the Krannert Graduate School of Management at Purdue University in 2003.
