Welcome to my page! 👋


I am an Assistant Professor in the Information Systems group at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). My research group focus on developing tools and techniques to improve operational processes. The core research areas include business intelligence, business engineering and process engineering. My research focus consists of following concrete topics:
  • data-driven decision-making
  • predictive maintenance
  • deep reinforcement learning
  • business process monitoring and optimisation
  • Self-supervised and transfer learning
If you are interested in talking about my research or possible collaboration, I welcome you to email me at z(dot)bukhsh@tue(dot)nl.
