Research expertise

My current research interests are related to using decomposition approaches and metaheuristic methods , sometime combined with exact methods, to solve some combinatorial problems. The main methods are local search (Tabu Search, Simulated Annealing, ...) and population based methods like Genetic Algorithms. The main application areas are the following: multiprocessor design, mining extraction, transportation problems in forestry, healthcare applications, and sport scheduling.
