Personal profile

Research Interests

Dr. Irawan's expertise is in Management Science and Operational Research. His primary research interests lie in the combinatorial optimisation which is applied in supply chain optimisation, facility location problem and renewable energy (offshore wind farm and biomass energy). In his research, mathematical models to approach the problems are developed so the optimal solutions can be obtained. Moreover, the solution methods using metaheuristic and matheurstic (Integration of heuristic and exact methods) techniques are also designed.

Personal profile

In September 2017, Chandra Irawan moved to his current role as Associate Professor in Operations Management at the Faculty of Business at UNNC. He has published his works in well-known international journals such as European Journal of Operational Research, Computer and Operations Research, Journal of Heuristics and Annals of Operations Research. Prior to the University of Nottingham Ningbo China, he was a research fellow at the Department of Mathematics at the University of Portsmouth UK for 3 years involved in the Leanwind Project (EU 7th Framework Programme project). The project aims to reduce the cost of installation, operation, and maintenance of offshore wind farms. He was developing mathematical models and solution methods to optimise supply chain and maintenance scheduling problems in offshore wind farms. During his PhD at Kent Business School at the University of Kent, he was also working as a teaching assistant. Before worked in the academic, Chandra Irawan spent 3 years working in automotive and mining industries as an engineer.
