I feel like I’m truly recognised and rewarded for the knowledge I have.

THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS HERE.

Before coming to NTU I worked in academia for nearly 20 years in UK universities and overseas. I always felt that I was not getting enough recognition for the effort I put in.

The difference at NTU was obvious from the outset. I became a Professor very quickly. Quicker, I think, than would have happened almost anywhere else. In my first two years they saw both my potential and how I could help the university grow and enhance its reputation. The development cycle was very swift for me. And now my research has been accredited internationally.

Now my research has been accredited internationally.

My research centres on sustainable supply chains and service operations, at the point where mathematics and management intersect. I know that mathematics on its own won’t create any change in society. However, I have been able to harness the interdisciplinary nature of my work to help quantify waste reduction.

FREEDOM IS MY KEY.

It gave me the opportunity to pursue research that can help solve some of the biggest societal and business issues facing the world today. I feel like I’m truly recognised and rewarded, both for my knowledge and my potential.
