Personal profile

Research interests

My research is exact and heuristic algorithms for integer and mixed-integer optimisation problems and their applications to healthcare and logistics problems. My expertise with exact optimisation methods includes branch-and-cut-and-price and cutting plane algorithms, especially for vehicle routing problems. In terms of heuristic optimisation methods, I have utilized variants of local search, tabu search, and large neighbourhood search in my papers and I have a working knowledge of genetic algorithms and neural networks. The areas of application for my research extend to the optimisation of ambulance location, vehicle routing, and airline crew scheduling.

Willing to supervise PhD

I am interested in hearing from PhD students who are interested in pursuing quality research in Vehicle Routing, Ambulance Location, Airline Management Problems.
