Current research topics

Energy systems optimisation

Applications of optimisation under uncertainty techniques to represent the evolution of energy systems and devise policy and decision making support to foster the adoption of low-carbon energy production. Some problems include:

  • Infrastucture expansion planning under uncertainty
  • Scenario generation and uncertainty representation
  • Efficient methods for market equilibrium problem

Inventory control using stochastic programming

Combining traditional inventory control theory with the flexibility of stochastic programming we are able to address more general settings. Some ideas we have been exploring:

  • Modelling of alternative control policies
  • Incorporating aspect such as perishability, leasd times, pooling effects, etc.
  • Development of decomposition methods

Emergency response, humanitarian logistics and healthcare planning

Investigating how we can use operations research to ultimately save lives. Challenges include:

  • Pre-location of emergency response supplies
  • Distribution of bednets to fight Malaria
  • Drug inventory routing
  • Blood units/ platelets inventory management
