My research is focusing on ways of using prescriptive business analytics (mainly simulation modelling) to support decision making in complex settings or situations with clouded clarity. I have focused most of my analytics research on healthcare complex problems and issues of information systems and knowledge sharing. This included using simulation to understand decision problems and facilitate ownership and intercommunication. I have recently re-established hybrid simulation as a unique approach to tackle complex problems from multi-perspectives. As part of services to university, I have managed the delivery of the distinctive PhD without Residence, which a collaborative doctoral programme between Brunel and Ahlia University in Bahrain. This remains the most innovative of its kind with its characteristic support for women in the Middle East to gain a PhD degree in their respective fields.
