Assoc. Prof. Ilze Ziedins
Department of Statistics
University of Auckland
Ilze Ziedins' research is in stochastic networks and queueing theory. She works on the modelling, analysis and optimisation of stochastic networks, with particular application to communications networks, transportation networks and, latterly, healthcare systems. Current themes include modelling and optimisation of patient flow in hospital systems; system optimal and user optimal admission and routing controls in queueing networks; and phase transitions and controls in loss networks.
Ilze has a BA from Waikato University and a PhD from Cambridge University. She has been at Auckland University since 1993, and prior to that held a Research Fellowship at Girton College, Cambridge, and then a lecturing position at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh.
