Research interests:
My research focuses on two lines of research: continuous optimization and management of natural resources. In the first line, I work mainly on semi-definite programming and second-order cone programming. I study from a theoretical point of view the stability of their solutions when their data are slightly perturbed and also study new algorithms for solving these problems (filter-SQP type methods for nonlinear SDP, proximal type algorithms for convex SOCP). In management of natural resources, I study optimal strategies for the sustainable exploitation of fisheries. I work on the optimization and control of bioprocesses related with the waste-water treatment and the production of biogas.
