Dr Maxwell Chipulu is Lecturer in Management Sciences within Business School at the University of Southampton.

Previously, I was a mechanical engineer working in the maintenance of underground copper mining equipment in Konkola, Zambia. I first came to the school as an MSc student in Management Sciences. Following my MSc, I worked briefly in corporate banking at Standard Chartered bank, before coming back to the school to do my PhD in Management Science and Statistics. I have worked in the School since then, apart from a spell as a senior lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire.

My current research is in data analytics, focussing on the development of forecasting and text analytics models for prediction and performance evaluation in complex and/or uncertain environments within projects/operations.




Research interests

My research focusses on the development and application of effective data analytics models for inference, prediction and performance evaluation that take into account all types of available data (quantitative or qualitative, primary or secondary, small or large datasets) in a variety of application areas including business forecasting, predictive modelling, project management and risk management. I am particularly interested in developing effective text analytics models.
