Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in research on time series forecasting, judgmental approaches for forecasting, statistical and judgmental model selection and integrated business forecasting processes. My research so far has focused on the improvement of forecasting processes and more specifically around two streams. First, I have examined how additional information can be extracted from time series data through time transformation (temporal aggregation). Second, I have investigated interactions between forecasting and management judgment.

Willing to supervise PhD

I welcome enquiries from potential PhD students in the areas of forecasting and behavioural operational research.
