OVERVIEW

My doctoral thesis work used tabu search (TS), variable neighbourhood search (VNS) and variable neighbourhood tabu search (VNTS) for the waste collection vehicle routing problem with time windows (VRPTW). I am also interested in solving other combinatorial problems by using metaheuristics as well as optimisation techniques.
