Professor Ignatius is an Associate Professor of Operations and Business Analytics at the University of Exeter Business School. He was previously at the University of Warwick as the Associate Professor of Supply Chain Analytics and Decision Making. He has designed, trained and implemented decision support systems for various fortune 500 companies. His consulting projects on decision analytics across interdisciplinary applications have appeared as applications in European Journal of Operational Research, Transportation Research Part E, Knowledge-Based Systems, TECHNOVATION and Experts Systems with Applications. He serves as an associate editor of International Journal of Machine Learning and Cybernetics. He is the recipient of the Endeavour Executive Award for high achieving professionals.

Nationality: Malaysian

Qualifications

  • Ph.D.

Research interests

  • Supply Chain Analytics
  • Behavioral Operations
  • Mean Field Games
  • Decision Support Systems

Professor Ignatius’ research aims to overcome supply chain decision making challenges by developing operations research and statistical models. He is a firm believer that common sense cannot be assumed in policy decisions. He designs incentive mechanisms and investigate how they ought to behave in driving positive behavioural changes in supply chains. He has a particular interest in data-driven systems across the energy, food and the transportation sectors.

Research projects

Professor Ignatius is currently developing an algorithm for emergency relief resource allocation for rapid response to bioterrorism attacks and infectious diseases. He is also working on a fairness allocation system of complementary subsidies between governments towards greening of the transportation sector.
