    Bio

    Uli Menzefricke is a Professor Emeritus of Operations Management and Statistics at Rotman. His research is focused on the extension of models and methodology in the areas of decision theory and quantitative analysis, in particular the models of statistical and probabilistic nature and their application to business situations. He is currently working on auditing issues for forecasting models, especially in pension forecasts and statistical quality control.
