Personal profile

Research Interests

My main research focus is on developing mathematical models for their use in efficiency measurement and decision making. Investigating their theoretical properties and applicability in different contexts is one aspect of that research while the other one, equally important, is in the direction of making these models simpler and easier to understand by practitioners. The following list further narrows down the main areas of interest:

  • Data Envelopment Analysis and Performance Measurement
  • Composite Indicators and Aggregation Operators
  • Multi-criteria and Soft Decision Analysis
  • Machine Learning and Optimisation
