My current research focuses on automated design and configuration of algorithms. This can be seen as a stochastic mixed-valued optimization problem. 

Besides, I am also interested in solving real-world optimization problems, especially the vehicle rounting and scheduling problems. Over the last years, I was already playing a leading role in designing mathematical models as well as metaheuristic algorithms for a number of industrial projects including: 

  • Carsharing scheduling by D'Ieteren 
  • Train scheduling by Deutsche Bahn 
  • School Taxi scheduling by ZIV 
  • Mobile nurse scheduling by Diakonie 
  • Locomotive scheduling by Siemens AG
