Personal profile

Research interests

My research is mainly centered around Humanitarian Operations, with more focus on the links between the humanitarian sector and i) philanthropic donations, ii) logistics, iii) blockchain and cryptocurrencies, iv) collaboration among different actors, and v) social media. My research on this field has been published in top OM journals such as Manufacturing & Service Operations Management, and Production and Operations Management. 

In addition to humanitarian operations, I also do research on revenue management, fleet management, and location problems. 

In terms of methodology, I mainly use optimization methods (dynamic, stochastic, integer, nonlinear), but also use simulations, heuristics, and statistical approaches.
