Peter Humphreys

PhD, School of Mathematical Sciences

Since graduating from the University of Queensland with a BSc (Mathematics) in 2001, I have been applying my skills across a diverse range of industries.  I started with Sunsuper as an actuarial support analyst, then worked as an operational and financial modeller with BMT Maritime Consultants before starting my own company in 2007 as a consultant primarily within the mining sector.  In March 2020, I began a PhD (operations research), in the field of hospital optimisation under the primary supervision of Associate Professor Paul Corry.  I have a keen interest in optimisation and am very grateful for the opportunity to study at QUT which will afford me an excellent academic environment in which to hone my practical skillset.
