Filipe Alvelos is a Associate Professor at University of Minho at the School of Engineering, Department of Production and Systems. He holds a "licenciatura" (5 years) and a master (2 years) in Computers and Electrical Engineering from Faculty of Engineering of University of Porto.His main specialization is Operations Research and
Optimization. In particular, he is specialized in the design of mathematical models and methods (such as integer programming and branch-and-price) and metaheuristics (in particular, local search based meta-heuristics) for problems arising in complex systems. He has been involved with the design and implementation of software (OOP) related to decomposition methods which combine linear and integer programming models, problem-specific algorithms, and metaheuristics. The main applications where he have been working are in telecommunications, cutting and packing, and kidney exchange programs.
