I teach in the area of operations management and supply chain management. Topics include production and operations management, production planning, service management, supply chain management, inventory control, simulation, procurement, theory of constraints etc.

 

3.2 Service and administration

 

I currently serve as the department’s graduate convenor. This involves all aspects of graduate studies at the department.

 

My major administrative duty has over many years been the coordination of 499/599 projects. These are investigative projects in the context of organisations, equivalent to a full paper, undertaken by students in their final year. In this role I have had substantial advisory contact with students in the formulation, approval, and administration of 499/599 projects.

 

I have also served as the Library representative for the Department, and have also been involved in overseas student support.
