Dr. Javier Faulin is a Full Professor of Statistics and Operations Research at the Department of Statistics, Computer Science, and Mathematics in the Public University of Navarre-UPNA (Pamplona, Spain). Similarly, he develops his research activities in Sustainable Transportation and Smart Logistics at the Institute of Smart Cities at the UPNA, being part of his steering committee since 2017. He also collaborates as Instructor-Tutor at the UNED local center in Pamplona. He holds a Ph.D. in Economics and Business from the University of Navarre (Pamplona, Spain), a M.Sc. in Operations Management, Logistics and Transportation from UNED (Madrid, Spain) and a M.Sc. and BSc in Applied Mathematics from the University of Zaragoza (Zaragoza, Spain). He has extended experience in distance and Web-based teaching during the last 20 years in different European universities. Moreover, his teaching has been developed in the following centers: Public University of Navarre (Pamplona, Navarre, Spain), University of Navarre (Pamplona, Navarre, Spain), UNED (Madrid, Spain), the Open University of Catalonia (Barcelona, Spain), the University of Rennes 1 (Rennes, France), and the University of Surrey (Guilford, Surrey, UK). Similarly, he is involved in assessment activities developed in well-known institutions such as the University College of Dublin (Ireland) or the FWO-Flanders Research Foundation (Belgium). 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 in the development of the simheuristics methodology as a way of imbrication of simulation with optimization (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S221471601500007X). He has published more than 150 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 eight PhD students and more than 60 graduate and master students. Furthermore, he has been the author of more than 200 talks in OR conferences. He is or has been an editorial board member of the journals: Transportation Research Part E: Logistics and Transportation Review (TRE), Sustainability (Sustainable Transportation Section), Journal of Applied Operational Research (JAOR), ORMS Letters (ORMSL), International Journal of Applied Management Science (IJAMS) and International Journal of Operations Research and Information Systems (IJORIS).
