I am an Assistant Professor of Operations Management in the Department of Decision Sciences and Information Management at KU Leuven. Before joining KU Leuven in 2019, 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.
Our paper "Single-machine scheduling with an external resource" (with Dirk Briskorn and Morteza Davari) has been accepted for publication in European Journal of Operational Research.
Our paper "Exact and approximation algorithms for the expanding search problem" (with Ben Hermans and Roel Leus) has been accepted for publication in INFORMS Journal on Computing.
I attended in the Dagstuhl Meeting "Mathematical Foundations of Dynamic Nash Flows" in September 2020.
Our paper "Rerouting Flows When Links Fail" (with Tom McCormick and Gianpaolo Oriolo) has been accepted for publication in SIAM Journal on Discrete Mathematics.
I've been invited to give a lecture at the Workshop on Integer and Combinatorial Optimization in March 2020 at RWTH Aachen. (event canceled)
Our research project "Optimization and analytics for stochastic and robust project scheduling" (with Erik Demeulemeester) has been approved for funding by FWO.
I attended the Dagstuhl Seminar on Scheduling in February 2020.
