Research interests

My research interests are concerned with the study of novel discrete optimisation problems with real-world applications in Humanitarian Operations and Logistics Management, and on the design and implementation of efficient algorithms for Location and Network Design problems arising in this context. From an application perspective, I am focusing on plan disaster relief and evacuation problems in Humanitarian Logistics.
