His research interests include transportation and logistics, vehicle routing problems and simulation modelling and analysis, especially in the practical resolution of logistics and delivery problems of companies. Similarly, he has developed a research line of evaluation of environmental impact of freight transportation and its relationship with vehicle routing problems. In order to model the previous problems, he has collaborated (along with Dr Angel Juan and other researchers) in the development of the simheuristics (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S221471601500007X) methodology, as a way of imbrication of simulation with optimization. He has published more than 120 papers in international journals, books and proceedings about logistics, routing and simulation. Similarly, he has taught many courses on line about Operations Research (OR) and Decision Making, and he has been the academic advisor of three PhD students and more than 50 graduate and master students. Furthermore, he has been the author of more than 180 talks in OR conferences. He is an editorial board member of the journals: Transportation Research Part E: Logistics and Transportation Review (TRE), Journal of Applied Operational Research (JAOR), International Journal of Applied Management Science (IJAMS) and International Journal of Operations Research and Information Systems (IJORIS).
