I will attend the Dagstuhl Seminar "Dynamic Traffic Models in Transportation Science" (May 8-13, 2022).
Our paper "Bifactor Approximation for Location Routing with Vehicle and Facility Capacities" (with Felipe Carrasco and Antonia Demleitner) was accepted for publication in European Journal of Operational Research.
Our paper "A Constant-factor Approximation for Generalized Malleable Scheduling under M♮-Concave Processing Speeds" (with Dimitris Fotakis and Orestis Papadigenopoulos) was accepted for publication at IPCO 2022.
Our paper "The popular assignment problem: when cardinality is more important than popularity" (with Tellikepalli Kavitha, Tamás Király, Ildikó Schlotter, and Ulrike Schmidt-Kraepelin) was accepted for publication at SODA 2022.
I participate in the program committee of INOC 2022.
I am an Assistant Professor of Operations Management in the Department of Decision Sciences and Information Management at KU Leuven. I am also a member of the KU Leuven Institute for Artificial Intelligence (Leuven.AI) and the KU Leuven Institute for Mobility (LIM).
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 focuses on combinatorial optimization and graph algorithms, in particular network and scheduling problems, approximation algorithms, and applications in logistics and transportation.
