I am an Associate Professor of Operations Research at the Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada.
Prior to joining Concordia, I was a Software Scientist at IBM as part of the CPLEX Studio Optimization team (2021-2022), an Associate Professor of OR at the UQAM Business School (2016-2020), and an Assistant Professor of OR before that at the same institution (2012-2016). I am affiliated to the two world-wide leading research centres in optimization, namely the CIRRELT and the GERAD. I held funding for more than 350,000 CAD as a principal investigator between 2012 and 2020.
I hold a bachelor degree in Mathematical Engineering from the University of Chile (2005), and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Montréal (2011).
My research interests span across multiple disciplines in OR, including logistics, vehicle routing, and data science, among others. The main focus of my research is the development of Mathematical Programming tools for the solution of hard combinatorial problems arising in those areas.
