Sophie has been involved in several third-party funded applied and fundamental research projects in OR in health care, field staff routing and scheduling, production planning, electric vehicle routing and scheduling, and multi-objective combinatorial optimization (both as project leader/PI and project collaborator). Her main research focus is the development of exact and heuristic optimization algorithms. Currently, she is particularly interested in generic exact methods for multi-objective (mixed) integer linear programming, in emission-free vehicle routing, facility location, and short and medium term production planning under uncertainty.
