FRQ–IVADO Research Chair Data Science
for Combinatorial Game Theory

I currently hold a FRQ–IVADO Research Chair in Data Science for Combinatorial Game Theory (Chair-DSCG). This is one of the three FRQ-IVADO Chairs to promote Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in digital intelligence.

We focus in fundamental research in Operations Research and its application in health, education, economic management and sustainability. See here a video presenting our team. The team also likes to participate in computational competitions: AI for TSP competition and MIP 2022 Computational Competition.

The Chair-DSCG is committed to promote equity, diversity and inclusion within the research team and research directions. Applications to be part of the team from women, visible minorities, Aboriginal people, people with any sexual orientation or gender identity, people with disabilities and people from economically disadvantaged backgrounds are welcome.
