Georgios Zois

Senior Researcher at ELTRUN

I received my BSc. diploma in Computer Science from University of Ioannina (UoI)-Greece in 2005 and a MSc. in Logic, Algorithms and Computation from University of Athens (UoA)-Greece in 2008. I completed my Ph.D. Thesis in University Pierre and Marie Curie (UPMC)-France in 2014, supervised by Evripidis Bampis and Ioannis Milis on the subject of algorithmic problems for energy and temperature-efficient computing. Since 2015 I am working as a Research Associate and Adjunct Lecturer at Athens University of Economics, having cooperated with the research groups: Data Science (Prof. V. Vassalos); Services, Technologies and Economics (STEcon) (Prof. G. Stamoulis); Algorithms and Discrete Optimization (ADOPT/ELTRUN) (Prof. I. Mourtos).

My current work is focused on optimisation problems in transport, supply chain management (location allocation, routing) and manufacturing (robust resource-aware production planning and scheduling), as well as on predictive and prescriptive analytics in terms of improving the decision making process.
