Dr Ripon Kumar Chakrabortty is experienced in applying Operations Research and Project Scheduling processes. His research interest covers a wide range of topics in Operations Research, Project Management, Supply Chain Management, and Information Systems Management. He is only accepting potential PhD students who have good programming skills along with a prior understanding of optimization and algorithms. Students with an exceptional academic score (more than 80%) and good publication records with proficient programming skills are encouraged to contact via firstname.lastname@example.org.
PhD scholarships ($35,000 per year) are available for high-achieving students (with H1/High Distinction in UG and/or Masters by Research) in engineering, mathematics or relevant sciences under my supervision.
Future PhD & Master by Research Students
Students who have good programming skills along with a prior understanding of optimization and algorithms are encouraged to apply. Students with excellent programming and communication skills will be highly appreciable. Several types of scholarships are available; however, admission and scholarship applications are highly competitive. A self-assessment tool is available to get a general feel for your competitiveness. You need to meet the English language requirements.

Optimisation as it term implies often brings diversified contexts under one umbrella. Despite of having opulence of existing optimisation approaches, integration of proper method with real-life applications is still a challenging and onerous task. Here, we as a team, have been working on many such techniques to foot-print in diversified domains along with the association of Capability Systems Centre.
