Projects and current work

Currently, I am one of the main developers of the SCIP Optimization Suite, which contains the fastest academic MIP solver SCIP, an LP solver called SoPlex, the mathematical programming langue ZIMPL, the generic parallelized branch-and-bound framework UG, and the generic branch-cut-and-price solver GCG (mainly developed at RWTH Aachen).

For my master thesis Reoptimization Techniques in MIP Solvers, I considered reoptimization for solving a sequence of optimization problems which differ in the objective function and the search space. Such a sequence of optimization problems is typically solved within column generation, i.e., the individual pricing problems. Therefore, I extended SCIP to a reoptimizing branch-and-bound framework.

My current research interests are in analyzing and exploiting infeasibility within solving MIPs.

Currently, I'm involved in the following projects:
