Seminario pubblico di Anna Livia Croella (Procedura valutativa per n.1 posto di Ricercatore a tempo determinato tipologia A - SC 01/A6 SSD MAT/09)
In this talk Anna Livia will present her research activities belonging to a diverse portfolio, covering both industry and society. She will talk about:
I) train rescheduling problems, a critical activity in rail traffic management done both off-line (timetabling) and on-line/in real-time (dispatching). She formulated a novel Dynamic Discretization Discovery model with a MaxSAT approach to reschedule train in real-time and outlined an automated procedure to achieve improved system safety in case of a disruption occurrence (a protocol now adopted by a Class I North-American railway);
II) location-routing in Waste Management (WM), one of the key tasks to realize circular economy and achieve sustainability used to efficiently support WM network reengineering. She will present a network design model for a large metropolitan area and a cluster-first location&sizing&route-second approach for designing a biomethane production chain fed by the Organic Fraction of Municipal Solid Waste.
III)nonprofit company management issues, in particular she will discuss a case addressing a (realistic) non-linear integer problem based on nonprofit company management issues and created a classroom game to challenge students with a real (and future) problem.
