Scientific Advisory Board Member of Complexica Pty Ltd
Complexica is a leading provider of Artificial Intelligence software for optimising sales & marketing activities, ranging from promotional planning, pricing, and product mix optimisation, through to sales force automation, CRM, and multi-channel quoting and order processing. If you want to learn more, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Office: Ingkarni Wardli Building, room 4.45
If you want to drop by, feel free to check with me via email first (additional contact details).

Offer: Summer Research/MCI/Honours/Masters/PhD Projects
Do you want to learn more about optimisation? You are eager to understand and to solve problems, either on the whiteboard or through hands-on research? I regularly offer Summer Research Scholarships and Honours and Masters projects (internal list). If you have your own ideas or if you like something from here, then take the initiative and contact me.

Scholarship Opportunities
International/domestic, Joint Postgraduate Scholarships Program with the China Scholarship Council, and a general note on competitive scholarships
