Heikki Peura

I am an Associate Professor in the Information and Service Management Department at Aalto University School of Business

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. 

Before joining Aalto, I was an Assistant Professor at Imperial College Business School. I obtained my PhD in Management Science and Operations at London Business School and a MSc in Engineering Physics and Mathematics at Aalto, where I majored in Systems and Operations Research.
