I am Richard Allmendinger, a Senior Lecturer at the Decision and Cognitive Sciences Research Centre at the
Alliance Manchester Business School (AMBS), University of Manchester, UK. I am also the
School Business Engagement Lead, the AMBS Lead for the CDT Data Analytics & Society and the new cross-faculty
MSc Data Science program.
Between November 2011 and August 2015, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher and Honorary Lecturer at the Biochemical
Engineering Department, University College London, UK. I received a Diplom degree in Business Engineering (Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen)
at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Germany) in 2008, and a PhD in Computer Science at
the University of Manchester, UK, in 2011. I joined AMBS in September 2015.
My research interests are in the development and application of simulation, optimization and analytics techniques to real-world problems arising in areas
such as healthcare, manufacturing, economics, sports, music, and forensics. In particular, I am interested in non-standard problems that possess features
such as expensive evaluations, uncertainty, (dynamic) constraints, and multiple objectives. Most of my research is interdisciplinary and jointly with external (industrial)
partners. To conduct my research I have received funding primarily from Innovate UK,
EPSRC, and industrial partners.
Fancy working with me?
If you are a student, academic, industrialists or an external organisation, and interested in working with me, then do not hesitate to send me an email. My contributions range across supervision, hands-on research, consultancy/advising, and public speaking. There are also various (internal and external) funding opportunities available and I can help identifying the most suitable one be it to fund e.g. a PhD project, research collaboration, fellowship application, network/relationship building activity, or the organisation of joint events. My research page and publications are a good indicator for my research interests.
