Dr Peter Jacko

Senior Lecturer

Research Overview

Peter Jacko is devoted to the development of the science of the solution of problems in the design and management of complex systems such as business decision-making, public health processes, and communications networks. Much of his research work benefits from the interaction of mathematics, statistics, computing, and/or economics. His publications contribute to areas such as operational research, performance evaluation, stochastic modelling, approximate dynamic programming, queueing theory, applied probability, and machine learning. These subjects provide foundation for the modern fields of business analytics and data science.
