My research interests are in supply chain management; risk management; game theory and optimization. Much of my research involves the application of these ideas in energy markets. I have been Area Editor for Energy at the journal 'Operations Research', and I am currently teaching Energy Analytics at Imperial.

I have published three books and around 70 papers in international academic journals. Thirteen students have successfully completed PhDs under my supervision.

I have an honours degree in Mathematics from the University of Cambridge, and a PhD in Operations Management, also from the University of Cambridge. I have held previous positions at the University of Cambridge, the University of New South Wales and the University of Sydney.  I have held a variety of academic management roles, including being Associate Dean, Research, at the University of Sydney Business School.
