I joined the department of Marketing and Retail management in Surrey Business School, University of Surrey from January 2017. I obtained my PhD degree in Management Science and Operational Research in Lancaster University Management School. I then joined Imperial College Business School as a research associate conducting consulting projects for a large automotive company in media budget allocation modelling. Before joining Surrey Business School, I was a lecturer in Marketing in University of Kent.
My research includes sales/demand forecasting with competitive/complementary promotional information and market response modelling.
