Personal profile


I am a Professor of Operational Research in the School of Mathematics and Physics, and Director of the Centre for Operational Research and Logistics. I have a BSc (Hons) in Mathematics with Operational Research from the University of Southampton and a PhD in Operational Research, also from the University of Portsmouth. I have been involved in research, teaching, and course development in the field of Logistics and Operational Research over the past twenty-five years. My area of research is the theory of making decisions in the presence of multiple, conflicting objectives.

I am interested in a wide range of applications but have specifically worked in applications to supply chain management and logistics, maritime logistics, healthcare, renewable energy and sustainability. I attend international conferences in either general Operational Research or specialised in Multi-Criteria Decision Making. My current research is funded by the European Union and I have particular research connections in France, Spain, and Brazil. I am the author of over 50 publications in international journals and a Springer research book on goal programming.
