Alfredo Torrico

I am currently a postdoc at the CERC in Data Science, Polytechnique Montréal under supervision of Andrea Lodi and Margarida Carvalho.

I obtained my Ph.D. in Operations Research at the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, Georgia Tech. My advisors were Mohit Singh, Sebastian Pokutta and Alejandro Toriello.

I obtained a Mathematical Engineering degree (M.S. in Applied Math equivalent) under supervision of Roberto Cominetti at the Mathematical Engineering Department, Universidad de Chile.

Research Interests

Methods: combinatorial optimization, submodular optimization, approximation algorithms. Theoretical tools that lie at the interface between discrete and continuous optimization.

Applications: diversity and fairness, market design, matchings, spread of misinformation, and in general, topics on Operations Research/Machine Learning for social good.
