Personal profile

Personal information

I am Associate Professor of Transport Optimization at the School of Business and Economics, section Logistics. I joined current resrearch group as an Assistant Professor in 2014. In 2012, I received my PhD in Operations Research from the School of Industrial Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). I have a Master degree in Industrial Engineering and Bachelor degree in Mathematics and Physics. Prior to joining VU Amsterdam, I was postdoctoral researcher at TU/e from 2012 to 2014.


My research focuses on modeling and solving real-life problems arising in transportation. In particular, I am interested in developing exact methods for variant transportation problems inspired from practice. I also have several years of experience as a consultant and algorithms expert. My research results have been successfully implemented and tested in several projects with industry, and published in leading academic journals: Transportation Science, European Journal of Operational Research, Computers and Operations Research and the International Journal of Production Economics.


I am the course coordinator of the following subjects:

  • Business Processes
  • Service Logistics

Project: Sensing Logistics (SensLog), Amount: €600.000

Innovative sensors enable capturing large amounts of data about freight flows and are more and more applied in practice. To reap the benefits of sensory data, the project will particularly focus on three topics: to develop models and decision support tools for sensor placement and sensor repositioning strategies, generate predictive models for logistics operations; to improve logistics performance; and finally to develop suitable offline and online algorithms to reschedule/re-route logistics operations.

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
