Ilze Ziedins joined the department in 1993. Her BA is from Waikato University and PhD from Cambridge. Her research interests are stochastic networks and queueing theory.
My primary research interest is the modelling, analysis and optimisation of stochastic networks, with particular application to communications networks, transportation networks, and latterly, healthcare systems. Particular themes that I am currently working on include phase transitions and controls in tree loss networks; system optimal and user optimal admission and routing controls in queueing networks; and modelling and optimisation of patient flow in hospital systems.
