Key details

Dr Hanif Malekpoor

Research Fellow


Dr Malekpoor has started as an NUSC Research Fellow since 2019. Before joining Greenwich, he worked as Senior Research Associate at the University of Hull, Logistics Institute. His research is focused on transportation, logistics and supply chain operations. Actively in

necessarily in the same order: - Length of time at the University - Previous Universities and positions, including teaching and research positions - Highlights in terms of research, publications and awards - Memberships of government or private funded bodies and associations - Recognition for any work or involvement in other activity - Use of any keywords, technical terms, or special study items which help illustrate your interests and research focus - The names of important academics in your field, with whom you may have collaborated previously, should you consider this to be important for reference purposes NB Keywords are important for use with search engines as they are used as metadata ‘tags’ which most search engines use to classify and sort search returns – so having these identified will help to increase the likelihood that you are identified with the right terms and appear in the search returns. · communication with industrial sector, he seeks to investigate the bottlenecks in logistics operations and proposing science-based solutions to the resolve the gaps between theory and practice. He has the experience of collaborating with some of the biggest logistics operators and manufacturers in the UK through UKRI and EU projects. He is a reviewer in journals of Resources, Conservation and Recycling and Production Planning and Control.
