Francesca Maggioni is Assistant Professor of Operations Research (01/A6, MAT/09 - Ricerca Operativa) at the Department of Management, Economics and Quantitative Methods at University of Bergamo (ITALY).
She obtained the Italian National Scientific Qualification as Associate and Full Professor of Operations Research (01/A6, MAT/09 - Ricerca Operativa) and Associate and Full Professor of Mathematical Methods for Economics and Finance (13/D4, SECS-S/06 - Metodi matematici dell'economia e delle scienze attuariali e finanziarie).
She has held research visiting fellowships at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Cambridge, Lancaster University Management School, Molde University College in Norway, University of Newcastle, University of Maryland, University of Vienna, "Centre Interuniversitaire de Recherche sur les Reseaux d’Entreprise, la Logistique et le Transport” (CIRRELT) Montreal and Laboratoire de Recherche en Informatique (LRI) Université Paris Sud.
She obtained a Ph.D. in Pure and Applied Mathematics from the University of Milano-Bicocca (2006) and Master degree in Mathematics at University Cattolica del Sacro Cuore of Brescia (2003).
Her research interests center on optimization of sequential decision problems under uncertainty using different methodologies like Stochastic Programming and Distributionally Robust Optimization. The applications considered are mainly in logistics, energy and biology areas. Former research interests are on geometric, topological and energetic aspects of knotted filaments. On these topics, she has published more than 40 research papers, which include 33 articles published in refereed Scopus/ISI international journals (see Research). The paper "On the groundstate energy spectrum of magnetic knots and links" has been selected by the editorial board of the Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical as one of the best research works of 2014, including a special mention in the JPA 2014 Highlights compilation (see In the Press).
She has been co-chair of the Winter School in Stochastic Programming (January 15-21 2017) Passo del Tonale ITALY and organizer of several invited sessions at AIRO, EURO, APMOD, ICSP, CMS and ECSO Conferences and the streams "Stochastic Models for Service Operations" at IFORS Conference in 2014 and the stream "Stochastic and Robust Optimization”, 29 European Conference on Operational Research in 2018.
In 2016 she has become elected member and secretary of the Managerial Board of the "European Working Group on Stochastic Programming" (EWGSP) and treasurer of the Managerial Board of the "Committee on Stochastic Programming" (COSP). In 2018 she has become the coordinator with P. Beraldi of the AIRO Thematic Section of Stochastic Programming.
She is Associate Editor of the Journal Computational Management Science (CMS) and guest Editor of the special issues "CMS 2016" in CMS and "Stochastic Optimization: Theory and Applications, in memory of Marida Bertocchi" in Annals of Operations Research.
Since 2009 she is a member of the Research Council of the Department of Management, Economics and Quantitative Methods, University of Bergamo.
She teaches and consults in the areas of Operations Research and Optimization (see Teaching).
