Main research areas:

  • Extensions of Dynamic Programming (sequential optimization relative to different cost functions, counting of optimal solutions, construction of the set of Pareto optimal points, study of relationships between two cost functions)
  • Machine Learning and Data Mining (multi-pruning of decision trees and knowledge representation both based on dynamic programming approach, relationships between exact learning and test theory, study of decision trees over infinite sets of attributes)
  • Discrete Optimization (analysis and multi-criteria optimization of decision and inhibitory trees and rules, element partition trees for rectangular meshes, and objects in various combinatorial optimization problems)
  • Applied Healthcare Analytics (simulation and optimization of organ allocation policies, analysis of kidney exchange problem)
