Operations Research, Prescriptive Analytics, and Systems Engineering.
What we do…
We are interested in harnessing the power of operations research, predictive analytics, and prescriptive analytics methodologies, to develop decision support tools for applied problems.
Currently, our research has focused on two main methodological areas:
We work in combining both areas, focused on applications, to make robust decision support systems. The applications we are looking into right now are energy management and astronomical observatory operations. They look far away from each other, but similar techniques can help significantly improve the processes if both settings. And both have large amounts of data that we can use to train, test, and validate our developments.
Current researchers and students working in our research group.
Machine Learning, Scheduling, Optimization

Some of the recent publications we want to highlight.
Current research projects and grants
One of our aims is to connect theory and practice in our research. These are the current projects in which we are involved, and that allows us to connect the two. In these projects, we are using combinatorial optimization and stochastic modeling techniques to develop decision support tools in various settings. A full list is available here.
Using operations research methodologies, we are developing new tools for observatory operations.
Using deep learning spatial-temporal graph models for seasonal forecasting of extreme temperature events.
We are combining machine learning and stochastic optimization tools to develop optimal energy management systems for fotovoltaic generation with storage.
