Teaching commitments

  • Operations Analytics
  • Strategic Supply Chain Management


I am interested in research on time series forecasting, supply chain forecasting and forecasting for social good. In my research, I have examined how a data transformation apparoach (Temporal Aggregation) can improve forecast accuracy and supply chain utilities. I am currently working on projects which are concerned with the social impact of forecasting.

Primary research interests

  • Statistical supply chain forecasting
  • Forecasting by aggregation
  • Forecasting for social good (health, Humanitarian, enviroment, education,...)
  • The interface between forecasting and decision making

PhD Supervision

I welcome enquiries from potential PhD students in the areas of supply chain forecasting and forecasting for social good(health, humanitarian, disaster, enviromental, education, ...) and Forecasting by aggregation.
