Graph theory, discrete optimization (applications in logistics, supply chain, vehicle routes, scheduling/timetabling, etc.), statistics.


I obtained my PhD in mathematics from EPFL in 2004. After a 3-year postdoc at the Group for Research in Decision Analysis (GERAD) in Montreal, I was hired in 2008 at the Haute Ecole de Gestion (HEG) in Geneva, my main employer, where I am currently a lecturer.

My areas of research are graph theory and combinatorial optimization, with applications in logistics, vehicle routing and scheduling. In particular, since 2012 I have been in charge of course and exam timetabling at the HEG. 

My teaching areas are decision support and graph theory (UniFR), and statistics and mathematics applied to economics (HEG).
