I am a Course Director in project management in the Department of Business and Enterprise, School of Business. I specialise in Project Management with interests in Risk and the application of decision making tools and techniques in disaster management.

I have more than a decade’s experience in various positions from supply chain manager of an automotive manufacturer to performance consultant of a worldwide distribution network of medical equipment amongst others, in addition to PhD in the highly analytical field of Decision Sciences in Operations Research, along with educational background in Economics, management and research.

My research focuses on various aspects of operations management, systems thinking, disaster management, decision making and serious games. My most recent piece of research is the development of a predictive framework for disaster response networks as a solution to partner proliferation problems after the disaster strike. I also provide consultancy to not-for-profit organisations on pro-bono basis and act as an anonymous reviewer in different peer reviewed academic journals as well as acting as chairs in various streams in related conferences.

I am also a member of the following research groups including “Gender and Disasters” at UCL , “SIG research interest group” at OR society and “Economic and Financial Modelling Research Group” at London South Bank University.

I am currently leading the Erasmus plus project TEGA.

Accepting self-funded full time students on the following subjects: Humanitarian logistics, Sustainable project, Simulation and serious game, Operations Risk , behavioural OR, Decision Sciences
