Overview

Our teaching is closely related to our research, mainly in the fields of operational research, optimization, multicriteria decision theory and applications, systems reliability and statistical modeling and inference. The connection between research and teaching flows both ways, with classroom discussions often inpiring new lines of investigation for our research group, and new developments in our optimization algorithms and on the statistical methodologies developed to test and compare them going back as case studies and new material for the undergraduate and graduate courses.
