Research Interests

Developing and implementing exact and heuristic approaches to solve large-scale real-life problems from diverse areas of application, like facility location, districting, or service scheduling, taking time dynamic, uncertainty and reliability issues into account. Combining different disciplines from mathematics and computer science, like combinatorial optimization, complexity theory, computational geometry, and calculus, to obtain structural results and exact solution approaches, e.g., for location problems with continuous demand.
