Aakil Caunhye

Postdoctoral Researcher of People and Operations in Resilient Sytems

Aakil M. Caunhye joined the ‘People and Operations in Resilient Systems’ research module as research fellow in April 2015, where he works on resilient power grid expansion planning, mainly using robust optimisation.

He received a B.E. degree and an M.S. degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering from the National University of Singapore in 2008 and 2009, respectively and a Ph.D. degree in Systems and Engineering Management from the Nanyang Technological University in 2014. His main research interests are in optimisation under uncertainty, with applications in disaster response and power grid resilience. He also works on the development of decomposition algorithms to improve optimisation model solution times.
