In this episode, we had the honour to host Dr. Bahman Rostami-Tabar from Cardiff University.
Bahman is a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Management Science at Cardiff Business School. His research focuses on forecasting, modelling and its link to decision making, particularly in forecasting for social good. He is the organizer of the Forecasting for Social Good workshops which investigate how and where forecasting can be used to create societal impact. He is also the organiser of the Democratising Forecasting workshops, an initiative sponsored by the International Institute of Forecasters, which provides forecasting tools in developing countries. In addition, he hosts a book club on forecasting — if you want to improve your forecasting skills, you can join along.
Bahman’s book suggestions include Forecasting: Principles and Practices, by Rob J Hyndman and George Athanasopoulos, and Demand Forecasting for Managers, by Enno Siemsen and Stephan Kolassa.
