I am an Assistant Professor at the Econometric Institute of the Erasmus University Rotterdam. Prior to my current position I was a postdoc at Georgia Tech (12/2016 – 05/2018) and before that I was a postdoc at the Polytechnique Montreal and GERAD (09/2014 – 08/2016). I completed my PhD studies in the Optimization and Automated Reasoning program of PUC-Rio and defended my thesis in April 2014. I hold a bachelor's and master's degree in Computer Science.
I am interested in developing exact and heuristic methods for solving difficult combinatorial optimization problems that arise in application areas of Operations Research, such as logistics, transportation, scheduling and multi-objective optimization. Algorithm engineering, graphs, data-structures and Integer Programming play an important role in my research. Over the past few years, I devoted attention to the design of efficient branch-cut-and-price algorithms for variants of the Vehicle Routing Problem and to Multi-objective Mixed Integer Programming.
