Curriculum vitae


My research activity falls within the fields of operations research and artificial intelligence. Most of my work concerns the study of algorithmic problems arising from decision theory, game theory and social choice theory. The contributions in these domains until recently indeed focused on characterization results, the computational aspect (i.e., the actual computability of the concepts introduced) being often left in the background. It is this second aspect that makes the originality of my contribution. More precisely, my research activity is divided today between multi-objective combinatorial optimization, multicriteria decision making, sequential decision making under uncertainty, robust combinatorial optimization, computational social choice and algorithmic game theory.
