Biography

My biography is available at http://ucc.insight-centre.org/lquesada/cv.pdf.

Research Interests

I am mostly interested in combinatorial optimization problems encountered during the configuration of  telecommunication networks (e.g. the implementation of location based services),  and in the  techniques in the area of Artificial Intelligence and Operations Research that can be used to tackle such problems (e.g., Constraint Programming, Mixed Integer Linear Programming, Boolean Satisfiability, Local Search, etc...).
