Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on developing innovative exact and metaheuristic algorithms for real world applications, including but not limited to vehicle routing problems, scheduling problems, disaster relief management, and maritime logistics.

Willing to supervise doctoral students

I am looking forward to supervise new doctoral researchers in the field of Operational Research. Candidates should have a quantitative background, some computer programming skills and be hard-working.
