My research interests are in the theory and practice
of algorithm design for combinatorial optimization problems. In
particular, I've done work on the complexity and tractability of
scheduling problems in many different variants, particularly scheduling under uncertainty. I also
have an affinity to algorithmic game theory and mechanism design problems, which
is my current research focus.
You can find further details on
projects (outdated, sorry),
we could have met or meet in the future, or my
I also have a brief overview CV online.
Since 2011 I'm area editor of Operations Research Letters for the area sequencing and scheduling. OR Letters seeks short, yet significant contributions to the design and analysis of algorithms for sequencing and scheduling problems. New methods and new models are welcome as long as the relevance to the OR community is made compellingly clear. before that I acted in 2010/2011 as editor for book reviews.
