Personal profile

Biography

I am a Professor in the Faculty of Engineering and Computing, the Faculty Research Degree leader and a member of CTAC – Control Theory and Applications Centre. My main research work has been in the area of modelling and treatment of uncertainty by employing fuzzy-logic based reasoning and optimisation in various domains such as supply chain management and control, inventory control, reverse logistics, production scheduling and forecasting.

I was the principal investigator on three EPSRC-funded projects in the areas of decision-support for supply chain management, production scheduling and scheduling in health care. I was a co-investigator of an FP7 grant on supporting adaptive network enterprise collaboration. Currently, I am a principal investigator of an EPSRC-funded project in the area of modelling resilient and robust manufacturing supply networks and a co-investigator on an FP7 grant on flexible dynamic production networks. I have been working on two projects funded by DSTL/MOD in the area of development of an intelligent guidance system for unmanned vehicles and modelling of military capabilities.

I have published over 110 papers, among which over 30 in reviewed scientific journals. I have been an Associate Editor of International Journal of Systems Sciences and IMA Journal of Management Mathematics and I am a member of the EPSRC Peer Review College.

Vision Statement:

I have been doing research which combines the Operational Research and Artificial Intelligence research areas. I have been developing new methods for uncertainty modelling, using fuzzy sets and fuzzy logic, and methods for optimisation in the presence of uncertainty and have applied them in various domains, such as supply chain management and control, scheduling and covering problems. In the future, I plan to develop an interdisciplinary, system-based framework for improving sustainability in supply chain performances in the presence of various risks and uncertainties. Multi-criteria optimization methods will be developed to handle three aspects of sustainability simultaneously including social, economic and environmental aspects.
