Biography

  • My name is Khaled Seif Abdallah a PhD graduate from IE department, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, United States.
    Currently, I am the associate dean of graduate studies and research at the college of International Transport and Logistics, Arab Academy for Science and Technology.

    I got my BSc. in 2001 from Design and Production Engineering Department, Faculty of Engineering, Ain Shams University, Egypt with a "Distinction with Honor" grade. Soon after Graduation I was appointed by the university to work as teaching assistant meanwhile, I started working on my Master Degree on Quality Control.
    I got my thesis based master in 2004, and started another 2 years masters in operations research from the Institute of Statistical Studies and Research, Cairo University meanwhile I started working on part time basis at “Allied for training and consulting” as a consulting engineer. Our team was responsible for improving the manufacturing practice of some of the industrial companies in Egypt such as “E-Med, Royal Pack, and Hi-Tek (it is its real name) companies”.
    In 2006, I applied for the PhD program at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee in the US. I got accepted with full fund.

    In my PhD, I have been working on an exact solution for vehicle routing problems with semi hard resource constraints. The resource constraints are semi-hard, meaning each resource requirement, such as time window requirements and delivery quantity requirement, can be relaxed to a pre-fixed extent at a predefined cost. The maximum number of customers whose requirements can be relaxed is fixed.

    Recently I participated in several successful funding including a recently recommended for funding project entitled “Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences: New Postgraduate Programs" with 12 other partners either academic industrial in Egypt and the EU as well. I also designed and Implemented an IS software to optimize planning the educational process within the college of International Transport and Logistics.
