I apologize, this page is awfully out-dated
Before I moved to Twente University, I worked as a assistant/associate professor at the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration at Maastricht University. There I was involved in the following research projects:
Before Maastricht University, I worked as a research assistant at the Institute of Mathematics at the Technische Universität Berlin. There I was involved in several research projects, partly with industry cooperations:
- The project
for Scheduling Scarce Recources in Chemical Engineering
was funded by the Bundesministerium für
Bildung und Forschung (bmb+f)
within the program Mathematical Methods for Solving Problems in
Industry and Business from July 1997 to August 2000.
This project addresses scheduling problems
which arise in chemical production processes; it is based on a cooperation
with Prof. Kallrath at
BASF AG Ludwigshafen.
You may want to have a look at the project homepage or the final report which summarizes some of the outcomes of this project.
- The project Polyhedral Methods in Stochastic Scheduling started January 1999, funded by
the German-Israeli Foundation for Scientific Research and Development
(GIF). It is a German-Israeli cooperation
which addresses polyhedral approaches to scheduling problems with random influences.
See the project homepage for further information.
- The project Automated Staff Scheduling
started in November 2000. It is a cooperation
with the ATOSS Software AG in München, Germany. The core of this project
is the development and implementation of
efficient optimization algorithms for different problems which arise in automated
staff scheduling. Eventually, the cooperation aims at providing an interactive
software module which allows to generate and manipulate
staff assignments automatically, according to the individual needs and objectives
of the scheduler.
