S. Pelletier @ Polytech Tours

Samuel Pelletier (HEC – Montréal) will visit Polytech Tours from 12/02/2018 to 20/02/2018. Samuel is a senior-year Ph.D. student at HEC – Montréal, working under the supervision of Professors Gilbert Laporte and Ola Jabali. During his visit, Samuel and e-VRO members will have the opportunity to discuss the state of the research on the field of electric vehicle routing and explore avenues for collaboration. Taking advantage of his visit, e-VRO has organised a research seminar on February 14 (find details here). If you happen to be around Tours that day, do not miss his talk. Welcome Samuel!


Laura Echeverri joins e-VRO

Laura Catalina Echeverri joins e-VRO as a Ph.D. Student. Laura holds an undergraduate degree in Mathematical Engineering and a Master’s degree in Economics from Universidad EAFIT (Medellín, Colombia). Laura’s dissertation will focus on multiperiod electric vehicle routing problems. She will work under the supervision of e-VRO’s Emmanuel Néron and Jorge E. Mendoza. Welcome aboard Laura!

Aurélien Froger joins e-VRO

Aurélien Froger joints e-VRO as a post-doctoral fellow. Aurélien recently finished his Ph.D. at the Institute of Applied Mathematics (Angers, France) and CIRRELT (Montréal, Canada). His dissertation topic focused on a maintenance scheduling problem raising in the onshore wind industry. Now in e-VRO he will continue working on operations research applications for sustainable development. Aurélien will be looking into electric vehicle routing problems with capacitated charging stations and charging station scheduling problems.

A. Montoya’s Ph.D. defense

e-VRO’s Alejandro Montoya is defending his Ph.D. thesis titled “Electric vehicle routing problems: models and solution approaches”on December 9, 2016. The jury is composed by Professors Daniele Vigo (Univ. Bologne) and Dominique Feillet (Mines Saint-Etienne) who reviewed the manuscript and will evaluate the oral presentation; Prof. Emannuel Néron (Polytech Tours) and Dr. Fabien Leuhédé (Mines Nantes) who will evaluate the oral presentation; and e-VRO members Pr.
