Introduction to the group
Our research interest is in the application of computer based decision support systems for the improved automation of the processes within areas such as transport, energy, biofuels and pharmaceutical sectors. A significant area of our current work involves the development of decision support programs to assist policy designers. These programs are based on engineering design, computer science techniques and decision methods such as for example, ontologies, multi-criteria decision making, backcasting and complexity science. Our research group is located in the Department of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford.
