Dr Esma Koca passed her viva without any corrections yesterday! Her thesis, “Product Release Strategies in the Digital Economy”, revisits several conventional economic models in the light of new constraints and opportunities that arise in the digital economy.
Our paper on The Decision Rule Approach to Optimization under Uncertainty: Methodology and Applications has been accepted for publication at Computational Management Science. A draft version of the paper can be found here.
Together with 14 researchers across Imperial College, we have successfully acquired funding for the EPSRC programme grant Integrated Development of Low-Carbon Energy Systems (IDLES): A Whole-System Paradigm for Creating a National Strategy! The project, led by Prof. Tim Green (Energy Futures Lab), is a multi-disciplinary programme of analytical work that spans critical areas of whole energy… Read more »
