Joint PhD with Ecole de Mines d'Albi.
I am very happy to announce, that in October 2020 a new collaboration was formed between me and Professor Frederick Benaben from Ecole de Mines d'Albi. As part of this collaboration I am honoured to act as a co-supervisor for a joint PhD student. As a practical partner the Iterop company is funding the project, providing requirements, and making sure that the results of the thesis can be transfered into industry.
Mehran Majidian Eidgahi has filled the position. Mehran has a strong industrial engineering background with a double Master's degree from Teheran University and Arts et Métiers Paris Tech. In his PhD project, Mehran will focus on how to introduce flexibility in process modeling and management. The thesis aims to amplify artificial intelligence and data analysis techniques in flexible process management. While most of the collaboration will run virtually, as soon as the situation allows, Mehran will also come to TU Wien for several research visits.
I am really looking forward to the joint supervision and to foster the collaboration with my French friends!
