Dr Andrew Brint
Lecturer in Operations Management
Andrew holds an MSc in Computer Science (Manchester) and a PhD in Information Studies (Sheffield). After postdoctoral work on computer vision, Andrew joined EA Technology in 1990 and worked on a variety of research and development projects for the electricity distribution industry. In 1998, Andrew was appointed as a lecturer in the Centre for Operational Research and Applied Statistics at the University of Salford before joining Sheffield University in 2006.
Andrews previous employment and education include; Lecturer in OR and Applied Statistics at Salford University; Research Scientist at EA Technology; Postdoctoral research in computer vision at Oxford University; PhD in Information Studies from The University of Sheffield; MSc in Computer Science from Manchester University; Mathematics degree (1st class) from Oxford University.
Education and experience
Mathematics, Computer Science, Information Studies, Operational Research, Statistics, Artificial Intelligence (Computer Vision), Electricity Distribution (LV network design and Asset Management).
Andrew´s research interests include; Infrastructure Asset Management – particularly with regard to electricity distribution networks; The effects of asking and reservation prices in auctions and bargaining – especially for houses, Operations and Supply Chain Management.
- MGT137 and MGT138 Analysis for Decision Making:
These modules introduce a range of quantitative techniques and tools which can be used to produce useful management information within a business context, for example project evaluation using Net Present Value and Internal Rate of Return. The ability to apply this knowledge and communicate the results of their analyses in a range of business situations is taught.
- MGT6046 Operations and Supply Chain Management:
This module provides knowledge of the basic concepts and techniques of Operations Management, along with an outline of some of the key concepts and techniques of Operational Research.
