Alistair_Clark.jpg

Name: Alistair Clark

Occupational Title: Associate Professor in Operational Research and Faculty Director of Research

Email: Alistair.Clark [at] uwe.ac.uk

Website: https://go.uwe.ac.uk/AlistairClark

Research Interests: My research interests centre on the development of models and heuristic methods for problems of resources planning and scheduling. Such problems are often highly complex and can be solved to optimality for only very small instances. As a result approximate models and solution methods are developed suitable for operational use making use of integer programming and metaheuristic approaches.

Keywords: Production; Scheduling; Logistics; Developing Countries
