I would like to thank all those who wished me a happy new year 2011 and also take the opportunity to wish you all a happy new year, 2011. Year in year out, people send out messages via whatever media wishing their dear ones a happy new year. Infact, some happy new year messages begin before Christmas and go through the first of the following year. It is very common to receive messages bearing Merry Christmas & Happy New Year just before Christmas from one friend, then before the first of the year you receive another one, this time bearing […]

Stochastic optimisation model for air traffic management

Air traffic delay is not only a source of inconvenience to the aviation passenger, but also a major deterrent to the optimisation of airport utility, especially in the developing countries. Many developing countries do less to abate this otherwise seemingly invincible constraint to development. The overall objective of this study was to investigate the dynamics of air traffic delays and to develop stochastic optimisation models that mitigate delays and facilitate efficient air traffic management. Aviation and meteorological data sources at Entebbe International Airport for theperiod 2004 to 2008 on daily basis were used for exploratory data analysis, modelling and simulation […]

PhD defended

I would like to wholeheartedly thank all those who turned up at my PhD defense on the 21st October, 2010. Did you know that my birthday was on the 25th October! I also deliver my appreciation to all those who managed to turn up for dinner on the same day at Imperial Royale. May God bless you abundantly. I have started working on some papers, to publish so as I don’t perish! And will keep you all posted on the events as they systematically unfold

Wesonga PhD defence

I salute you all! I will be presenting a PhD defence on the 21st October, 2010 at 2pm at Makerere University, Kampala-Uganda. It is about a very interesting title ” stochastic optimisation models for air traffic management.” I would like to invite you all to attend. Below is the abstract of the thesis for defence. Air traffic delay is not only a source of inconvenience to the aviation passenger, but also a major deterrent to the optimisation of airport utility, especially in the developing countries. Many developing countries do less to abate this otherwise seemingly invincible constraint to development. The […]
