Expertise

Operations Research is an applied science and my focus is at manpower planning and related areas. I have worked with automatics rostering for home care (in cooperation with Zealand Care), disruption management (with British Airways and DSB S-tog) and general manpower planning (with Cimber Air and ATS Data). My other focus area is vehicle routing for the transport sector. Here I have worked with the development of the basic methods for efficient planning of fleets of vehicles (in collaboration with Transvision). Additionally I have assisted Danish companies with knowledge on the potential and possibilities in automatic planning.

International experience

I have been research fellow at the University of Auckland in 1997 (6 months), 2005 (2 months) and 2006 (3 months). Additional I was guest researcher at the University of Linköping in 2003. Jeg have been examinator on Ph.D. theses from Sweden and Australia, and examinator on MSc. theses from New Zealand. Furthermore I have been reviewer for the Chilean Research Council and for the 6th and 7th framework in the EU.

Other information

I am teaching integer programming and industriel applications of advanced methods. I have been or is currently supervisor for more than 20 MSc thesis' and 5 Ph.D. students. Additionally I am member of the advisory board for the MSc in Transport and Traffic at the Technical University of Denmark. Since 2006 I have been member of the executive committee of the European association of OR-societies (EURO). Furthermore I am chair of the Nordic section of the Math. Programming Society. I am editor-in-chief of the Danish OR newsletter as well as I am country editor for International Abstracts of Operational Research, as well as guest-editor of 2 special issues in Computers & Operations Research resp. International Journal of Operations Research. I arranged a Nordic summerschool (2002) and workshops in vehicle routing (2000 and 2003), and I was chair of the organising committee of the 1st Nordic Optimization Symposium in 2006.
