Gregor Godbersen : Expert in Operations Research

Operations Research

My work in operations research is at the intersection of mathematics, computer science, and management science, driven by exciting applications.

I hold a Doctoral Degree in Operations Research from the Technical University of Munich, Germany and worked as a Research Associate under the guidance of Prof. Dr. Rainer Kolisch. My dissertation titled “Design and Operations of Charging Infrastructure for Commercial Electric Vehicle Fleets — Advanced Algorithms and Practical Applications” was awarded the distinction “Magna Cum Laude”. I was a member of the PhD Program AdONE: Advanced Optimization in a Networked Economy funded by the German Science Foundation (DFG).

My focus and expertise in Operations Research lie in solving transportation and routing problems from the strategic point of view (network design, infrastructure development) and the operational point of view (scheduling vehicles, assigning workers). To solve these problems, I design and implement problem-specific solution approaches and algorithms. My methodological focus has been on a mix of branch-and-price, cutting-plane methods, and heuristic approaches.

My work on electric charging infrastructure has been presented at various operations research conferences (OR, EURO, TSL) and published in:

I have supervised 40 Student Theses over a wide variety of topics ranging from more business focussed, Process Implementation and Preperation for ISO 9001:2015 Certification for a Battery Storage Systems Startup, to implementation heavy An Adaptive Large Neighborhood Search for a Real-World Multi-Attribute Vehicle Routing and Scheduling Problem.

In addition to my academic focus on cutting-edge exact solution methods, I’ve also developed heuristics for solving optimization problems. With my background in Data Science and Software Engineering, I’m equipped to handle end-to-end optimization projects and provide solutions for your real-world challenges from start to finish.
