He has extensive experience of working with organisations in the public and private sectors in the area of developing discrete-event simulation models in commercial software such as Arena and Simio. Details of his simulation projects can be found in the practitioner book ‘Simulating Business Processes for Descriptive, Predictive and Prescriptive Analytics’ published by DeGruyter in the USA in 2019.
He is interested in supervising PhD students and undertaking consultancy in the public and private sectors in the following areas of application:
- Simulation models which implement machine learning approaches such as reinforcement learning
- Simulation models which implement digital twins of processes
- Simulation models which model aspects of human behaviour
- Simulation models which model agent-based systems
A number of text books, monographs and practitioner guides have been published which aim to make a contribution in the areas of research, teaching and learning and impact in industry.
