Professor of Operational Research

Dylan Jones


I am a Professor of Operational Research in the Department of Mathematics, and Chair of the Logistics and Operational Research Group (LORG). 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 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, and renewable energy. 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 40 publications in international journals and a Springer research book on goal programming.
