Supervision

Wee is interested in supervising PhD projects in the fields of:

  1. inventory control and optimisation 
  2. operations-marketing interface
  3. non-profit operations

Currently, his research uses quantitative techniques in applied probability, operations research and game theory. However, he also welcome students with interests to apply multidisciplinary approaches to pursue similar research areas.

Wee and his colleague Dr Farhad Shafti have considered supervising a PhD student in the area of foodbank supply chain. This research aims to explore how they can improve the UK foodbank and adopts a combination of qualitative and quantitative approaches to draw insights into supply chain design. In effect, this topic falls under a broader class of closed-loop supply chain pertaining to non-profit organisations such as foodbank to explore an optimised or desirable setup for their operations. This is their initial idea, but they are flexible to consider any interesting variations of the above.

Currently there is no available financial support for this topic, but once a suitable candidate starts the work, any appropriate opportunities will be considered. There are no guarantees that such opportunities result in financial support, therefore the candidate needs to be prepared for self-finance. Please provide your cv, academic transcript, and a proposal outlining how your interests can be a good fit for this particular research agenda.
