Research, Practice, Teaching, …

Since October 1 2007, I am Assistant Professor at the Polytechnic School of Brussels (Université Libre de Bruxelles). Currently, I am head of the Computer and Decision Engineering Laboratory which includes the SMG unit.  My teaching activities mainly cover Operational Research, Probability and Statistics and Decision Engineering. My research activities are mainly focused on Multicriteria Decision Aid and I do my best to promote the applications of these tools to real problems. Last but not least, I am one the co-founders of the Decision Sights spin-off.

Research

My research interests cover different aspects of Multicriteria Decision Aid: multicriteria classification and clustering techniques, metaheuristics applied to MCDA problems, the development of multicriteria visualisation tools for GIS, multi-objective optimization robustness analysis,… I am currently supervising six PhD candidates: Anh Vu Doa, Stefan Eppe, Karim Lidouh, Julien Roland, Renaud Sarrazin and Maryam Bagherikavarin.

Teaching

Since 2001, I have supervised anout 60 master theses. I am also regularly involved in academic projects and industrial stages. Here is a list of my courses:

 

- “Calcul des Probabilités et Statistiques” (ULB)

- “Operational Research” (ULB)

- “Decision Engineering” (ULB)

- “Instruments et Processus de prise de décision” (ULB)

- “Optimisation pour un développement durable” (Université de Nantes, France)

Practice

I am one of the co-founders of Decision Sights; a Spin-Off of the ULB. This company is dedicated to the selling of the D-SIGHT software and consultancy services in the field of multicriteria decision aid. After my degree in Mathematics, I have been working for two years for Flux Consultancy (nowadays Business & Decision). As a SAS expert, I have been involved in two main risk management projects for Belgian Banks. Nowadays I am still conducting business projects as a freelancer or for the university. Recent contracts include;

·         KBC: development of a tracking error model for the department of assets management;

·         ELIA: development of a model to evaluate replacement strategies for low and high voltage equipments;

·         La Police Fédérale: development of a model to assess the criminality in Belgium;

·         Fluxys: development of an optimization model.

 

Besides these projects, I also teach short courses (typically 2 or 3 days) in “Statistics” or “Decision Aid”. Recent seminars have been organized for CORA, BELGACOM and ULB Continuous Training.
