IMG_6094-Edit_Website_300px

I am an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science at Polytech Tours and the co-director of the Operations Research, Scheduling, and Transportation research group at the University of Tours’ Computer Science Laboratory. Since late 2015 I am also the head of Electric Vehicle Routing Optimization (e-VRO), a 4-year research program funded by the French national research agency (ANR). I am currently on a research leave funded by the French national center for scientific research (CNRS) that I am spending as a visiting scholar at CIRRELT and CRM in Montréal, Canada.
