Personal profile

Personal profile

I received a BSc degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in 2011, and a MSc degree in Systems Engineering and Industrial Planning in 2013, both from the Polytechnic Institute of Porto. My research interests are about applying Operations Research (OR) methods to solve complex real-life decision-making problems. After working 2 years in INESC Porto as a research assistant, I started a PhD project (February 2015) called 'Advanced Logistical Optimization of the Radiotherapy Treatment' (ALORT). In this project, we will develop optimization models based on OR methods to study how operations, personnel and equipment can be efficiently coordinated to ensure patient-centeredness and timeliness when delivering radiotherapy.
