Conduct research and provide insight into high-technology industries

Within the field of Operations Management, students and faculty study the design and management of production and business processes across the manufacturing and services sectors. Doctoral students benefit from the multidisciplinary nature of the Operations Management Department through collaboration with Imperial’s other Departments such as Computing, Engineering and Mathematics, which provides a rich research community. 

The research interests of the faculty are broad, with expertise in services, pricing, transportation, risk management, machine learning, revenue management, manufacturing, supply chain, health, energy, retail, digital transformation, the interface between operations management and marketing, decision-making under uncertainty, as well as stochastic programming and robust optimisation and computational finance.
