Operational Research

Road system from above

Operational Research (OR) is the discipline of applying advanced analytical methods to help make better decisions.

Recently, I have focused mostly on robust optimisation and its applications in discrete choice modelling, portfolio optimisation and transportation.
My work in Operational Research develops new mathematical tools and theories to solve real-world problems in diverse settings; most recently disaster relief, production line optimisation, healthcare and transportation.
