Education

1995: "Laurea" degree in Mathematics at the University of Rome "Tor Vergata"

1999: Ph.D. in Operations Research,  University of Rome "La Sapienza".  

 

Research Activities

Gaia Nicosia's main research interests concern combinatorial optimization models for planning and scheduling problems, with applications in manufacturing and logistics. In particular, her attention focuses on the (i) characterization of problems in terms of computational complexity, (ii) development of exact, heuristic and on-line combinatorial algorithms, and (iii) validation of the proposed approaches through computational experiments. The main application areas of her research activities are: Layout design in production systems; Logistics and Transportation; Scheduling; Multi-agent systems; Telecommunication systems.

 

She reviewed papers for the following journals: Operations Research, European Journal of Operational Research, Discrete Applied Mathematics, Discrete Optimization, Annals of Operations Research, International Journal of Production Research, Journal of Scheduling, Computers and Mathematics with Applications, Operational Research: An International Journal, 4OR-Quarterly Journal of Operations Research  and  Journal of Combinatorial Optimization, besides numerous conferences.
 

She supervised one Ph.D. student in Computer Science and Automation at the Universitŗ degli studi "Roma Tre".

 

Program committees of international conferences:   

Organizing committees of international conferences:

She was guest editor of a special issue devoted to CTW2011 of Discrete Applied Mathematics (volume 165, issue 11, 2014).
