Mary Brooks teaches and conducts research in the areas of transportation management and policy at Dalhousie.

Dalhousie professor Mary Brooks will join a retired Vice-Admiral of the U.S. Coast Guard, the Vice-President of General Dynamics and four other distinguished colleagues from the transportation industry in becoming a board member of the Marine Board of the U.S. National Research Council. Her three-year appointment will see her participating in the provision of expert advice on maritime transportation, ports and related issues.

Dr. Brooks teaches and conducts research in the areas of transportation management and policy (particularly for maritime industries), export strategy, and international strategic management at Dalhousie’s Faculty of Management where she holds the William A. Black Chair of Commerce. Widely published, she works to improve awareness of management and policy issues in all modes of transportation, particularly for maritime industries and to emphasize the importance of transportation to the North American economy. Among her many achievements, she was a 2005 Canada–U.S. Fulbright Scholar at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, a recipient of Canada’s Most Powerful Women Top 100 Award and winner of the 2005-06 A. Gordon Archibald Award for Teaching Excellence in the School of Business Administration.
“Dr. Brooks has distinguished herself once again and is an excellent example of how our faculty engages with the public and private sectors to find solutions to the complex management issues of our times,” said David Wheeler, Dean of the Faculty of Management.
