Dean School of Business and Economics, Professor of Management Science
Stewart Robinson holds an honours degree in Management Science (Operational Research) (1985) and a PhD in Management Science (1998), both from Lancaster University. He is a Fellow of the Operational Research Society.
Stewart started his career as a business analyst for a shoe retailing company and then as a consultant with ISTEL (now Lanner Group). During this time he gained much experience in performing and supporting simulation studies with a wide range of organisations.
Stewart’s research focuses on simulation methods: discrete-event simulation, system dynamics and agent-based simulation. He carries out research on the practice of simulation with a particular interest in: the verification and validation of simulation models, conceptual modelling, output analysis, comparing simulation methods, modelling human decision-making in simulations, and using simulation as a facilitative tool.
