I am Professor of Management Science and I have also served as Associate Dean (Research) in the Management School. I am Chair of the Business & Management Studies panel in the 2014 REF, which will assess the research performance of all UK Business and Management Schools. My research has been supported by EPSRC, ESRC and other sponsors.

I currently supervise four research students, all working in areas related to OR & Management Science in healthcare.

My research interests are:

• Developments in discrete event simulation
• Performance measurement in public services
• Theories of modelling and model use
• Operational Research and Management Science in healthcare.

All involve the overlap between theory and practice.
