My contributions (and also my research project) are divided along two axes: one dedicated to global optimization and the other to discrete optimization problems resulting from ICT (Information and Communication Technology) applications.
The common elements between these two axes are represented by: the design of mathematical programming models to solve applied problems (green-networking, placement and routing of virtualized network functions, optimal design of spatial trajectories, gas separation processes by membranes, etc.), the analysis of underlying mathematical structures and their use in the design of effective optimization algorithms (heuristic and exact) for large scale problems.
