Hi! I am an Assistant Professor at the Département de management et technologie of ESG, the management school of UQAM. I am also a research member of the Interuniversity Research Centre on Enterprise Networks, Logistics and Transportation (CIRRELT), and a member of the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Data Science for Real-time Decision-Making (CERC-DS4DM), in which I was formerly involved as a Research Associate. Before, I joint the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as a Postdoctoral Associate within the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART) program, after having obtained my Ph.D. in Computer Science and Operations Research from the Université de Montréal.

Research areas:

My main expertise lies in the fields of Operations Research, Computer Science and Mathematical Optimization; broadly, "Data Science". My research interests include:
  • Large-scale optimization for dynamic (combinatorial) planning problems,
  • Optimization under uncertainty
  • Data-driven optimization and the improvement of (à priori and real-time) planning through integration of external data sources via machine learning techniques,
  • Development of Operations Research based algorithms to efficiently solve learning problems.
Application domains include logistics and transportation, retail & revenue management, and project management. Current and previous industrial collaborators include Gapso Analytics, JDA Labs and FPInnovations.

Student recruitment:

If you are interested in some of these topics, would like to pursue a M.Sc. or Ph.D. degree at a university in Montréal and possess a strong background in Mathematics and programming, don't hesitate to inquire current funding options by contacting me.
