My research interests are theory and applications of Optimisation. I am particularly interested in mixed integer programming (modelling and solution methods) and in applications with a positive impact in society. My students and I have recently tackled problems in environmental water management, disaster relief operations, educational timetabling, assembly line balancing and city logistics.
