I am an Associate Professor of Business Analytics at Southampton Business School, the University of Southampton and a member of the Centre for Operational Research, Management Sciences and Information Systems (CORMSIS). I am also a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, an associate editor of the Journal of Simulation, and the chair of The OR Society‘s Special Interest Group in Simulation.

Previously, I was an Associate Professor of Data Analytics at Trinity Business School, Trinity College Dublin, The University of Dublin, and Assistant Professor in Operational Research at Lancaster University Management School, Lancaster University. My past leadership roles include the Director of Postgraduate Teaching at the Department of Management Science, Lancaster University Management School overseeing MSc programmes in Business Analytics, Management Science and Marketing Analytics, Logistics and Supply Chain Management, e-Business and Innovation, and Project Management. I did my PhD at the National University of Singapore

Research interests

My research interests lie in the areas of business analytics using simulation. I am particularly interested in simulation modelling methodology (symbiotic simulation/digital twins, agent-based simulation, discrete-event simulation) with applications in operations and supply chain management (e.g. health and social care, agrifood and disaster risk management) and hybrid modelling (e.g. simheuristic). Currently, I am the associate editor of the Journal of Simulation and the chair of The OR Society's Special Interest Group in Simulation. I am actively involved in the organisation of the Winter Simulation Conference (track coordinator for agent-based simulation since 2018).

PhD Supervision

I am willing to supervise doctoral students in the following areas:

  • Hybrid modelling: research related to the interface between simulation, optimisation and machine learning.
  • Research related to improving the practice of simulation modelling methods (agent-based simulation, discrete-event simulation, hybrid simulation, symbiotic simulation)
  • Topic areas related to the applications of simulation in operations management (e.g. disaster risk management and hospital management) and supply chain management (e.g. agrifood)

As per December 2019, I have supervised eight PhD students (four completed) and examined PhD candidates from universities such as: Brunel, Cranfield, Lancaster, Limerick, Loughborough, Nanyang Technological University, Technical University Dublin, and Warwick.
