Mr Samin Aref
MSc in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research (Sharif)
I am a Doctoral Candidate with a background in Industrial Engineering. Prior to my current research, I had joint research studies on green transportation, revenue management in hotel and air cargo, logistics network planning, manufacturing scheduling, flexible supply chains, concurrent product development, and ergonomics in airports with collaborators from New Zealand, Norway, Turkey, Canada, United States, Ireland, and at last but not least Iran.
