Personal Statement

My research resides in the Capability Risk and Reliability Analysis of Technology Innovation. I am looking at the options of improving the reliability of a product in development. In order to the technologically advancement of mechanical products, I am supporting the effort to address the reliability of products via statistical modelling and the empirical Bayesian methodology.

In general, I am interested in the use of mathematical methods in engineering, technology and innovation with a keen interest in including economical evaluations.

Teaching Interests

My teaching experience as a tutor leans towards the use of Statistics within Risk. I was tutoring the class Risk Management repeadely and with joy. It is use to model risk within areas like supply chain, transportation and health. Techniques like fault trees or BBNs are used.

I undertook also tutoring for the class Spreadsheet Modeling and Demand Forecasting. The class showed the use spreadsheets for forecasting, simulation, optimisation and data analysis. The module explored the development of macros with VBA.

My tutor support for the class Foundations of Business Analysis & Technology consisted in developing and understanding tools that help reduce costs, increase revenues, improve customer service and increase efficiency. Between used techniques can be mentioned the development of a MCDA model performation of a SWOT analysis and Break-Even calculations.

Industrial Relevance

In the BSc program engaged in the project on Predictive Model on Panel Data for the groceries and general merchandise retailer Kaufland. Specifically, demand forecasting of fresh fruit and vegetables for the Czech Republic.
