Roberto Roberti


Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam
Research field
Supply Chain Analytics


Roberto Roberti is Associate Professor at the Department of Innovation, Logistics and Information at the School of Business and Economics, VU Amsterdam.

Roberto received a Master Degree in Computer Science (2008) and a PhD in Control System Engineering and Operational Research (2012) from the University of Bologna (Italy). After completing his PhD, Roberto has served as Post-Doc research fellow in Operations Research at the University of Bologna and as Assistant Professor in Transport Optimization at the Technical University of Denmark (Denmark).

Roberto’s main research focus is on exact and heuristic algorithms for solving combinatorial optimization problems arising in transportation and logistics. His research outcomes have been published in major international journals, such as Management Science, Operations Research, and Transportation Science.
