Sri Talluri earned the B. S. degree in mechanical engineering in India in 1989, the M. S. degree in industrial and manufacturing systems engineering and the Ph. D. degree in production and operations management from the University of Texas at Arlington in 1992 and 1996, respectively. He is a Professor of Operations and Supply Chain Management at Michigan State University. His research interests are in the areas of supply chain risk, strategic sourcing and buyer-supplier relationships, technology management, and performance evaluation. Research methodologies mainly include optimization methods (deterministic and stochastic models), game theory, empirical methods (statistical models), and data envelopment analysis. He has 80 journal publications in a variety of academic journals including the IIE Transactions, Decision Sciences, Production and Operations Management Journal, Journal of Operations Management, International Journal of Production Research, European Journal of Operational Research, IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management, and has presented papers in various national and international conferences. Sri has more than 7000 citations of his work and an h-index of 41.

In research articles published in 2013 and 2015, Sri was ranked as a top 20 (rank # 17) researcher worldwide in terms of the impact of his work in the domain of data envelopment analysis (Liu, J.S., Lu, Y. Y., Lu, W.M., and Lin, B.J. Data envelopment analysis 1978-2010: A citation-based literature survey, OMEGA, 41, pp. 3-15, 2013), and top 100 (top 1%) researcher worldwide in the area of operations management in terms of publications in elite journals (Shang, G., Saladin, B., Fry, T., and Donohue, J.
