Dr Richard Williams

Lecturer

Research Overview

I am a member of the Department of Management Science and actively involved in three of its research groups: Information Systems Research Group, Health Systems Research Group, and Simulation and Stochastic Modelling Research Group. In addition, I am an Affiliate Member of the multidisciplinary Data Science Institute. My research revolves around the broad theme of Complex Systems Science. At present, I have particular interest in two main areas around: Operational Research of Health and Illness (Computational Biology, Bioinformatics and Medicine), and Operational Research of Social Dynamics in Information System projects.
