Dr Ahmed Kheiri

Dr Ahmed Kheiri is a Lecturer (equivalent to Assistant Professor) in Operations Research at Lancaster University Management School, Department of Management Science.

He received his B.Sc. (Hons - First Class) from the University of Khartoum, Sudan, in 2007, and received his M.Sc. (Distinction) and PhD. from the University of Nottingham, UK, in 2010 and 2014, respectively.

He then held research positions at the University of Exeter, and the Cardiff School of Mathematics in Wales.

Dr Kheiri has good inter-disciplinary research that broadly contributes to the growing field of Search and Optimisation. His research interests cut across operational research, artificial intelligence and data science, investigating flexible and general cross domain optimisation methods to solve combinatorial optimisation problems, i.e., problems in which variables are restricted to take integer (whole-number) values. Typical application areas include Routing, Cutting, Packing, Placement, Assignment, Ordering, Grouping, Partitioning, Timetabling and Scheduling Problems.

He has co-chaired several workshops, reviewed numerous academic journal, News articles and has served on many program/technical committees in major international conferences.

In total, he has published 27 refereed papers in reputable journals (the vast majority, if not all, indexed in SCI/SCI-Expanded) and highly respected international conferences.

During his career, he received several academic awards some of which are awarded by participating in international optimisation challenges.

In his spare time he enjoys playing and watching football.
