Dr Alireza Pakgohar

Senior Lecturer In Business Operations And Systems


I have been a faculty member at University level since 1996. I have taught several modules in the field of Industrial Engineering and Management for more than 22 years.

I have had the chance to have a parallel career. I was Logistics Manager of Legrond for four years and Logistics Manager of Azin Khodro Co. - auto part manufacturer - for about four years as well.

In addition, I have worked as a Project Control/Coordinator Manager in Roshd Sanat Company.

Therefore, I have gathered lots of experience in all of my interest fields, which support my academic and teaching career. I have conducted my PhD research in University of Exeter. I proposed an Integrated System for the Management of Complex Project Portfolios and its Supply Chain Operations.

My teaching and research interest areas are Supply Chain Management and Project Management.
