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.
