I am Associate Professor in Operations Research (01/A6, MAT/09 - Ricerca Operativa) at the Department of Economics at the University of Bergamo, ITALY.
My research interests center on optimization of sequential decision problems under uncertainty using Stochastic Programming, Robust and Distributionally Robust Optimization. My methodological research is mainly based on bounding and approximating this class of difficult decision problems. Moreover, I like to combine theoretical work with applications inspired by real-case problems provided by companies mainly operating in logistics, waste management and energy systems.
My research regularly features in peer-reviewed operations research journals (e.g., European Journal of Operations Research, Transportation Science, Annals of Operations Research, International Journal of Production Economics, Computational Management Science) and mathematical journals (e.g., SIAM Journal on Optimization, Journal of Optimization, Theory and Applications).
Former research interests related to my PhD, are on geometric, topological and energetic aspects of knotted filaments with publications in Proceeding of the Royal Society A, Physical Review E, Il Nuovo Cimento C, Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical, etc (see Research).
I currently serve on the editorial board of Computational Management Science, on the editorial board of EURO Journal on Computational Optimization, on the board of the Stochastic Programming Society as secretary, on the board of the EURO Working Group on Stochastic Optimization as treasurer and I am chair with P. Beraldi of the AIRO Thematic Section of Stochastic Programming.
Since September 2018 I received the Italian Habilitations (ASN) as Full Professor in Operations Research (01/A6, MAT/09) and in Mathematical Methods for Economics and Finance (13/D4, SECS-S/06).
