Personal profile

Personal information

Roberto Roberti is Associate Professor at the Department of Supply Chain Analytics at the School of Business and Economics, VU Amsterdam.

Roberto received a Master Degree in Computer Science (2008) and a PhD in Control System Engineering and Operational Research (2012) from the University of Bologna (Italy). After completing his PhD, Roberto has served as Post-Doc research fellow in Operations Research at the University of Bologna and as Assistant Professor in Transport Optimization at the Technical University of Denmark (Denmark).


Roberto has lectured several courses such as Operations Research, Combinatorial Optimization, Resource Optimization, Optimization Algorithms, Methods and Algorithms for Problem Solving, Vehicle Routing and Distribution Planning, and Optimization of Public Transport. He is currently responsible for the courses "Operations Analysis", "Procurement and Supply Management", and "Supply Chain Lab". He is also coordinator of the master theses in Business Administration with specialization in Transport and Supply Management.


Roberto’s main research focus is on exact and heuristic algorithms for solving combinatorial optimization problems arising in transportation and logistics. His research outcomes have been published in major international journals, such as Management Science, Operations Research, and Transportation Science.
