Optimization and Data Science

About the Group

Our group develops approaches, formulations and solutions to specific optimization and data science problems using a quantitative point of view. We solve data analysis, quality control, process optimization, planning and production scheduling, facility location, inventory, vehicle routing, territorial design, forest management and port logistics problems .

The approach is quantitative, it provides formulation and solution to problems by designing algorithms that allow us to obtain both exact and approximate solutions.
