About me

I have a Kurdish heritage, born and raised in a small town in the West part of Iran, just half-an hour drive to Kurdish Iraqi border.

Bozin and Marakhil Protected Area

After high school, I moved to Tehran and studied Industrial Engineering, receiving my BSc. from K.N.Toosi University of Technology (2004). Following my graduation, I have worked in various companies in different industries as planning engineer in Tehran and South of Iran. I then decided to continue my studies and recieved my MSc in Industrial Engineering from Tarabiat Modares University(2008). After working in the project managemt filed for two years, I decided to pursue my PhD in France. I moved to France in 2009 and recieved my PhD from the University of Bordeuax, France in 2014. Following that, I have spent two years at Ecole Central-Supelec for my post doctoral reserach.

I am now an Associate Professor in Management Science and Business Analytics at Cardiff University. Prior to that, I was an Assistant Professor at Coventry University.

I am very passionate about forecasting, business analytics, modeling and knowledge sharing. I have created Democratising forecasting initiative sponsored by the International Institute of forecasters that aims at training students, academics and professionals in developing countries and share the latest knowledge and best practices on forecasting using R. Moreover, I’ve deliver three workshops per year for NHS in collaboration with NHS-R Community.

I am the founder and current chair of the Forecasting for Social Good initiative which aims at bringing academics, researchers and practitioners to advance forecasting for social good agenda.

Bahman is the founder and Chair of Forecasting for Social Good initiatives sponsored by the International Institute of Forecasters. In his research, he has been developing and using management science and analytic tools and techniques to improve decision-making in healthcare, humanitarian operations and supply chain sectors. He has been working with many organisations including the National Health Service (NHS), Welsh Ambulance Service Trusts, United States Agency for International Developments and John Snow, Inc.

His research goals are directed toward the use of Management Science tools and techniques to improve decision making in supply chains and operations management, and as such positively contribute to both industrial and societal advancements. I have written numerous scientific publications on forecasting and presented my research at over 20 international conferences.
