My research interests concern both methodological and applicative aspects for optimization under uncertainty. From a methodological point of view, I am interested in developing different types of bounds and approximation for stochastic, robust and distributionally robust multistage and multi-horizon optimization problems. These methods are applied to solve optimization problems in machine learning, logistics, transportation, energy markets and pension funds. Former research activity was aimed at the study of geometric, topological and energetic aspects of knotted filaments in different physical contexts like elastic filaments, ideal magnetohydrodynamics and Euler fluids.
