Doctor of Philosophy University of South Australia
Master of Mathematics (Combinatonics and Optimization) University of Waterloo
Bachelor of Science (Mathematical Sciences) The University of Adelaide
For my successful candidature for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy, I studied Ground Holding Optimisation and Air Schedule Recovery under the supervision of Professor Jerzy Filar.
From 2002 until 2007, I led projects on scheduling of trains on longhaul networks for the Cooperative Research Centre for Railway Engineering and Technologies.

Supervision of Honours and Final Year Projects. I have supervised many student projects, most of them in the broad area of Combinatorial Optimisation.
Honours Projects currently available. Combinatorial Optimisation Optimisation problems in which the feasible solutions are naturally integer valued or come from some other discrete set are referred to as combinatorial. Some of them, like the minimal spanning tree, are very easy to solve and some, like the celebrated travelling salesperson, are quite difficult. The problems give rise to many interesting solution techniques involving combinatorics, linear programming and primaldual methods, and lean on properties like complexity of algorithms and unimodularity of matrices. According to the student’s interest, this project could focus on a particular problem or class of problems, or on a particular solution technique.
