Bruno Vieira


Personal details



Bruno received a BSc degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in 2011, and a MSc degree in Systems Engineering and Industrial Planning in 2013, both from the Polytechnic Institute of Porto. His research interests are about applying Operations Research (OR) methods to solve complex real-life decision-making problems. After working 2 years in INESC Porto as a research assistant, he started a PhD project (February 2015) called 'Advanced Logistical Optimization of the Radiotherapy Treatment' (ALORT). In cooperation with the University of Twente, he works on the development of mathematical optimization models to study how operations, personnel and equipment can be efficiently coordinated to ensure patient-centeredness and timeliness when delivering radiotherapy. This 5-year project is intended to lead to implementation efforts amongst 5 radiotherapy centers in the Netherlands.
