My next Sabbatical

It is public knowledge that, like most other academics in Australia ... I have been overworked and underpaid for many years. I shall therefore not dwell on this sad story here.

But I took advantage of the "Sabbatical Leave" scheme to go on extended visits to academic institutions oversees. This was both enjoyable and professionally beneficial and rewarding.

Now that I have retired, I am on a long sabbatical "leave"! I plan to continue my research and other academic activities. So this year the destination is the always beautiful ... Rio de Janeiro where I taught my favorite subject (dynamic programming) to young graduate students. I am happy to report that the 2nd edition of my DP book is now available!

My next project in this area is a "soft" introduction to the art and science of Dynamic Programming.

Regarding next year:

I'll consider any reasonable proposal, especially from individuals and/or organisations in Australia and the neighborhood.

In addition to teaching and research in my areas of expertise, other possible topics I offer to research/teach during my sabbatical are the following:

Note that my visit will put your institution on the world-map!

If your organization is promoting Info-Gap, I suggest that you invite me for a seminar at your place. I promise to deliver a lively, informative, entertaining and convincing presentation explaining why it is not a good idea to use — let alone promote — Info-Gap as a decision-making tool.

Here is a list of relevant lectures/seminars on this topic that I gave in the last two years.
