The research interests of the laboratory cover the area of systems science comprehensively ranging from the mathematical theories and algorithms of optimization, control, decision making to the practical interactive computer decision support systems as well as risk and technology assesment.
As a university institution the laboratory is unique in Finland. It is responsible for the graduate specialty of systems and operations research in the engineering physics and mathematics program and it gives basic courses in systems analysis and applied mathematics for all students of the Aalto University School of Science. The laboratory is also in charge of the Doctoral Education Network in Systems Analysis, Decision Making, and Risk Management.
We are generally interested in doctoral students as well as visiting researchers. The University also has a visiting professor program.
We are also interested in engaging researchers on a short term basis to carry out joint research. Please contact any of our professors.
