Since January 2019, I am an Assistant Professor of Operations Management in the Department of Decision Sciences and Information Management at KU Leuven. Before joining KU Leuven, I was a lecturer (Akademischer Rat) in the Operations Research group of Technische Universität München. Earlier, I was a postdoc at Universidad de Chile and a visiting professor at the University of Rome "Tor Vergata". I completed my PhD in Mathematics at TU Berlin in 2013 under the supervison of Martin Skutella and Britta Peis.
My research focusses on combinatorial optimization and graph algorithms, in particular network and scheduling problems, approximation algorithms, and applications in logistics and transportation.
