Dr. Ripon Kumar Chakrabortty has more than 8 years of academic teaching and research experience in Bangladesh and Australia. He is vastly experienced in applying System Engineering and Project management processes. His research interest covers a wide range of topics in Operations Research, Project Management, Supply Chain Management, and information systems management. He is actively looking for potential Ph.D. students who have good programming skills along with a prior understanding of optimization and algorithms. Students with excellent programming and communication skills will be highly appreciable.

 

Ph.D. 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. If you are interested contact me at r.chakrabortty@adfa.edu.au

 

 

Future Ph.D. & 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. If you are eligible and interested in working on the following (or closely related) topics or keywords, please send me your CV, academic transcripts, the result of the self-assessment, and a research proposal. Your research proposal should highlight:

  • Research Motivation,
  • Research problems,
  • Research Objectives and Questions
  • Brief Review of the most relevant Literature,
  • Proposed Methodology and
  • Expected Outcome.

 

For more information, please refer to the following links on how and when to apply for a research degree. NB: You can seek my advice/help during the construction of your Research Proposal.

Research Activities

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.
