Alberto Del Pia

I am an assistant professor of Industrial and Systems Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-MadisonI am also a core member of the Optimization group at the Wisconsin Institute for DiscoveryBy courtesy, I am an assistant professor of Mathematics, and of Computer Sciences. My main research interests lie in structural properties and algorithms for mixed-integer linear and polynomial optimization, polyhedral combinatorics, and combinatorial optimization.

In 2009 I received my Ph.D. from the University of Padova in Mathematics, under the supervision of Giacomo Zambelli. I then worked as a postdoctoral researcher with Robert Weismantel, first in the Institute for Mathematical Optimization of the Otto-von-Guericke University in Magdeburg, and then in the Institute for Operations Research of ETH Zürich. In 2013 I joined, as a Goldstine Fellow, the Mathematical Programming group, managed by Oktay Günlük, of the Business Analytics and Mathematical Sciences Department at the IBM Watson Research Center. I joined UW-Madison in 2014.
