Short Bio: 

Ali Emrouznejad is a Professor and Chair in Business Analytics at Aston Business School, UK. His areas of research interest include performance measurement and management, efficiency and productivity analysis as well as data mining and big data. He holds an MSc in applied mathematics and received his PhD in operational research and systems from Warwick Business School, UK. Having got PhD in the area of DEA, in 1998, he has joined to the development team of Performance Indicators (PI) in Higher Education (HE) at HEFCE (Higher Education Funding Council for England). The PI in HE has been widely published and it is now an annual publication of HESA (Higher Education Statistical Agency). He has also collaborated on research project titled “assessing cost efficiencies in higher education” funded by the Department for Education and Skills (DfES). His most research project is on “Analysis of efficiencies and productivity evolution in manufacturing industries with CO2 emissions” funded by Royal Academy of Engineering.
