Sheffield University Management School
My name is Azar, an ESR at the University of Sheffield. I hold a Master’s Degree in Industrial Engineering from Urmia University (Iran). In my MSc dissertation, I developed a fuzzy expert system for prioritization of heterogeneous customers with different needs. After my graduation, and before joining ReTraCE as an ESR, I worked as a Production Planning expert at Orum Sanat Saman, a company active in the automotive industry in Iran.
As an Early Stage Researcher based at USFD (UK), I will focus on practical problems arising in closed-loop supply chains, where product returns and recovery are possible through several modes. A mathematical model for handling such situations will be developed, along with a meta-heuristic algorithm aimed at dealing with large and complex instances coming from real-world problems.
