The Operational Research & Management Sciences group at Warwick Business School comprises four Professors, seven Associate Professors, two Assistant Professors and two Teaching Fellows. Our research focuses in the areas of revenue and demand management, multi-criteria decision analysis, simulation, approximation and heuristics, and decision making under uncertainty (among others). The aforementioned research specialities are an excellent match for the proposed research project since all are needed either in the mathematical design and solution of the problem or in the evaluation of the effectiveness of the proposed methodology. In the subject Statistics and Operational Research, Warwick was ranked 43 globally in 2015 by the QS World University Ranking (28th, 30th in 2014 and 2013, respectively).
