Job Title:

Information, Decision and Operations

Key Research Interests:

Sustainable Operations Management, Analytical and Simulation Models

Research Interests

The desire to attain sustainability (profitability given environmental and social constraints) requires a rethinking of the way we do business. The area of Sustainable Operations Management re-examines concepts long-researched by traditional Operations Management literature (e.g. product and service design, supply network and process design) under the lens of sustainability. One way to do this is to use analytical and simulation models, informed by empirical data and employing concepts from a variety of fields, to predict behaviour of and prescribe behaviour for organisations and individuals faced with various future scenarios.

PhD Supervision

I am happy to consider potential PhD students with these interests.
