Dr Honora Smith is a Visiting Fellow within Mathematical Sciences. 

Previously a Lecturer in Operational Research (OR), Honora lectured in forecasting and stochastic processes, amongst several subjects.  Honora’s responsibilities included being Programme Director of MSc OR and Finance, and Senior Tutor for the OR MSc programmes.

Following on from a PhD in OR entitled 'Locating sustainable community health facilities', which involved several visits to rural India, Honora’s research has been focused on healthcare modelling, with an interest in facility location analysis and OR for developing countries. Honora has supervised PhD students with healthcare modelling projects based in the blood supply chain internationally, and in National Health Service (NHS) hospitals. Honora has also supervised MSc students participating in the Centre for Operational Research, Management Science and Information Systems (CORMSIS) MSc summer project scheme, with projects in healthcare and revenue management.  

Research interests

Honora’s primary research interest is in the applications of OR in health care. She uses a wide variety of approaches, such as location analysis, simulation and data mining, to suggest possible improvements to health practice and organisation.

Honora is a member of the Centre for Operational Research, Management Science and Information Systems (CORMSIS); she belongs to the European OR Societies (EURO) working group on OR applied to health services (ORAHS), and the EURO working group on OR for Development (EWG-ORD)
