- Simulation optimisation
- Healthcare management
- Decision making under uncertainty
- Disaster relief
- Optimal pricing
Current research focuses on the use of simulation and stochastic optimisation to solve problems in the following areas:
- Health: the use of simulation optimisation in real-time management of emergency departments; infectious disease modelling; patient flow and waiting list reduction.
- Disaster relief: optimisation of procurement and delivery of food relief with a particular focus on Indonesia.
- Optimal pricing: the application of robust optimisation and choice modelling to problems within revenue management and pricing in the leisure and transportation sectors.
