I am a PhD candidate in the Doctoral Program in Engineering and Industrial Management, in FEUP (Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto) and a researcher at INESC.
My main field of research is Operations Research and Management Science. Within this scientific area, I am focused on grocery retailing, more specifically in studying ways to improve space management in retail stores.
From the techniques viewpoint, I have been using statistical analysis, data mining and benchmark analysis techniques. Furthermore, I have been developing mathematical models and metaheuristic approaches.
