AWARDS & RECOGNITIONS


OVERVIEW

I'm interested in Modelling and Computer Simulation. Basically, my research are more focusing in decision making techniques. As simulation including Discrete Event and System Dynamics are part of the techniques that can be used as a decision tools, it can be applied to various field. My PhD was focused on healthcare process. Whilst my Undergraduate and Master is more on IT Management.
