I am Chair in Analytics and Operations Management at Brunel Business School and have received a PhD in Management Engineering and MEng in Management Science from KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology). Previously, I gained industrial experience from BT Group CTO for 6 years before joining Brunel. I secured more than 3 million Euros of research grants from EU FP7, H2020, and Qatar National Research Foundation, and Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information to Brunel University London in the area of information systems and operations management mainly applying data analytics techniques for decision makers. The excellence of my research has been awarded by international institutes such as WfMC (Workflow Management Coalition) and IET (The Institutes of Engineering and Technology) as well as BT Group. I published articles on international journals including Management Science, European Journal of Operational Research, Transportation Reserach Part E, Annals of Operations Research, Computers and OR, Information Systems Frontier, and Government Information Quarterly among others. I have strong connections within the industry, providing paid consulting services to several companies including BT Group, Turksat, ARKAS Holdings, Qatar University and Promatech.
