Heikki Peura

I am an Assistant Professor of Operations and Analytics at Imperial College Business School.

Before joining Imperial, I obtained a PhD in Management Science and Operations at London Business School and a MSc in Engineering Physics and Mathematics at Aalto University where I majored in Systems and Operations Research.

In my research, I develop optimisation and analytics methods for understanding and improving firms’ operational decisions. In particular, I work on applications in revenue management, sustainable energy generation, and supply chain management.
