Biography/Responsibilities/Duties:

Starting in 2001, I worked my way from senior lecturer to full professor at The University of the West
Indies (UWI), St Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago. I obtained my tenure in 2004, and am presently
the Chair Professor of Industrial Engineering (IE) and the coordinator of IE Research Group. I was
the Deputy Dean in Research and Postgraduate Student Affairs (2006-2007 and 2009-2012) of the
Faculty of Engineering, and served as the Campus Coordinator (2012-2015) of the School for
Graduate Studies and Research. Before joining UWI, I held several academic positions at The City
The University of Hong Kong, and worked in industry as an operations executive, researcher, engineer and
consultant in Hong Kong and the United Kingdom for some 15 years.


I am Chartered Engineer in the UK, as well as Registered Professional Engineer in Australia, Europe,
Hong Kong, and The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. I am a member of Caribbean Academy of
Science (CAS), Fellow of The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS), and Fellow/member of several
professional bodies and learned societies (such as IEEE, IISE, ASME, ASQ, IET, BCS, CIM, IEAust, HKIE,
HKSQ, and APE). I have been serving the Chairperson of the Technology and Engineering
Management Society Chapter of the IEEE Trinidad and Tobago Section since 2003, and was Past
Chair of the Mechanical & Industrial Division of the Association of Professional Engineers of Trinidad
and Tobago (2004-2009). At present, I also serve as the chair of the Local Member Community
(LMC) of the American Society for Quality, Trinidad and Tobago.


My research activities include industrial and systems engineering, engineering management,
quality management, performance measurement, innovation, and information systems. I
published more than 250 journal articles, technical papers, reports and teaching aids, and had
completed 19 research projects funded by The UWI and other overseas universities and
governments. I am presently supervising five (5) MPhil/PhD students at The UWI. My research work
has been cited widely by researchers and scholars. As at 24 May 2018, there were more than 4,280
citations of my publications and the ‘h-index’ was 36 and the ‘i10-index’ was 59 (source:
