Research

My main research activities are in the area of Stochastic Operations Research, at the challenging interface of theory and application. My research interests include emergency response systems, predictive policing, management of road traffic, modeling and scalability analysis of ICT systems, mobility, service logistics, freight logistics, grid computing, revenue management, military operations research, sensor networks, call centers, queueing theory and data analytics. I am a co-founder of the spin-off company Stokhos Emergency Mathematics. Currently, I am also the chair of the European COST project named ‘Autonomous Control for a Reliable Internet of Services’ (ACROSS).
