Wolfram Wiesemann, Professor of Professor of Analytics & Operations at Imperial College Business School, will head up the Department of Analytics, Marketing & Operations from September.

His research interests include exploring how quantitative methods can assist prudent organisational decision-making in a world where choices are frequently based on uncertain or incomplete information, such as future customer demands, raw material prices or exchange rates. Many of his research projects are motivated by problems faced in operations management, energy systems and financial engineering, and they are frequently inspired by and carried out in collaboration with industrial partners.
