Homepage: Nav Mustafee

Hi, welcome to my homepage! I am based in the Centre for Innovation and Service Research, University of Exeter Business School, working as a Senior Lecturer in Operations and Supply Chain Management. I hold a PhD in Information Systems and Computing and a MSc in Distributed Systems from Brunel University
Previous experience includes working as a research fellow in EU-funded project on e-Science and e-Infrastructures BELIEF-II and lectureship in Swansea University. I publish in Computing and Operations Research/Simulation journals, including, Simulation: Transactions SCSEuropean Journal of Operational Research (EJOR), Journal of the Operational Research Society (JORS), ACM Transactions on Modelling and Computer Simulation (TOMACS), Expert Systems with Applications (ESA) and Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience (CCPE). I presently supervise two PGR students and welcome PhD queries in Simulation Methodologies (e.g., Hybrid Simulation, Applied Computing and M&S), Modelling for Sustainability and Circular Economy, Healthcare Simulation, Business Intelligence and AnalyticsI come from Kolkata, the capital of the state of West Bengal, in India. 

I am the founding co-chair of the Health and Care IMPACT (Information, Modelling, Prediction and Evaluation to inform ACTion) Network, together with Dr Andrew Fordyce, MBBS, from Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust. The purpose of the network is to strengthen relationships between academics, health and social care managers and practitioners, clinicians, information analysts and service users within the health and care system in South West of England, in order to improve the process of problem-solving, decision making and solution implementation. The aim is to build a culture of use of data and information, analytical tools and techniques, and system evaluation to improve quality, safety and cost of care.

My current research interests are in Hybrid Systems Modelling (application of simulation with the wider Operational Research techniques like Problem Structuring Methods, Game Theory and Forecasting), Multi-Methodology/Hybrid Simulation (application of two or more simulation techniques) and Serious GamesI use techniques like Discrete-Event, Agent-Based and Spreadsheet/Monte Carlo simulation, and have applied them in the context of healthcare operations management and supply chain pedagogy. My healthcare research involves working with stakeholders from the UK National Health Service (NHS). I have a background in Distributed Systems and have applied Desktop Grid Computing to execute large and complex simulations in healthcare, banking and the auto industry.  Some of this work has involved inter-operability and the reuse of simulation models through Parallel and Distributed Simulation (PADS) principles, standards (IEEE 1516 High Level Architecture) and software (Run-Time Infrastructure).  I have research interests in Bibliometric and Meta-data Analysis of Research Domains.
