Markus Bohlin, Docent, Research Leader (not working at IDT anymore)

Markus Bohlin is the leader of the Industrial Efficiency (IND-E) focus area at SICS. He received his PhD at Mälardalen University in 2009; the topic of his thesis was practical combinatorial optimization problems in industry. In 2013 he was appointed as Associate Professor (Docent) in Computer Science at Mälardalen University, where he is also supervising three PhD students. He currently serves as the president of the Swedish Operations Research Association.

His research interests are in the real-world application of optimization methods and operations research to industrial processes, in particular to railways, embedded software verification and validation, and industrial maintenance. His work has been published in more than 25 conference proceedings and journals. Two core algorithms he designed have been successfully deployed in industry.

Markus currently serve as reviewer for six scientific journals, and is on the program committee for two conferences. He has been on the organization committee for the annual Industrial Efficiency conference since 2009. In 2013, he served as the main organizer and program chair for the joint Swedish Operations Research Conference and the 6th Nordic Optimization Symposium (SOAK/NOS6 2013) in Gothenburg, Sweden.
