Elham Ahmadi

PhD Candidate

Elham Ahmadi started her journey as Research Associate and PhD candidate at the Kühne Logistics University under the Supervision of Prof. Dr. André Ludwig in May 2022. Her research focuses on the application of Data Science and Machine Learning in Logistics and Supply Chain Management. With her research Elham contributes to the "CargoSurfer" project funded by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, whose main goal is to make a digital platform based on the prediction by Machine Learning for a multi modal logistics system.

Prior to KLU, she received her second Master of Science degree in "Supply Chain Engineering and Management" from Jacobs University Bremen in June 2019. For her master's thesis, she applied her skills and knowledge in data analytics for Twitter sentiment analysis to improve a vehicle routing problem with drones. Elham received another Master of Science degree in Industrial Engineering from Yazd University of Iran in 2013. Her Bachelor of Science degree is also in industrial engineering from the same university. In pursuing her bachelor’s degree, she was a member of the Brilliant Talents Association, for this reason she was invited to study for an entrance exam-free Master's degree. During her studies, she was able to develop her skills in the application of machine learning algorithms in her field of study, which developed three models based on artificial intelligence to predict the stock market for her master's thesis. In addition to her studies, Elham has five years of experience as an Industrial Engineering Manager in the steel pipe industry in Iran.
