I joined the Industrial Engineering Department at Universidad de Chile in
2009. Prior to that I was at the Industrial and Systems Engineering Department
at the University of Southern California, from where I still hold an
Adjunct Research appointment.
I received my Mathematical Engineering degree and BS from Universidad de
Chile and my Ph.D. in Operations Research from MIT, working with
professor Robert M. Freund..
My
research focuses on convex and robust optimization, complexity of algorithms,
sensitivity analysis, and applications of optimization to
engineering and management science.
My research has been supported with grants from the National Science
Foundation, PATH, Caltrans, Department of Homeland Security and
Department of Transportation in the United States and Conicyt and the
Institute Milenium in Chile.
This has led to published work in journals such as Operations Research,
Transportation Science, Mathematics of Operations Research, IIE Transactions,
and highly selective conference proceedings AAMAS, IJCAI.
I have received the Wagner prize for Excellence in Operations Research practice
and the Rist Prize of the Military Operations Research Society.
